electricity breakdown

Posted on

name: Aitziber / age: 27 / profession: cultural worker & filmmaker / location: barcelona / weekday: monday / reference: october 21st: electric breakdown for 2 days at my apartment in Barcelona. 45 square meters attic in the old part of the city for 441€/month, half of my wage including the expenses. The electricity was never renewed and i thought the breakdown was due to its age. i was afraid of calling Fecsa -the electric company- since they have no record of the existence of this electric system at this address and i´ve never paid any bill. julio, the owner of the bar downstairs came to have a look at it and also youness, a friend. i thought i´d have to pay for a new installation in order to fix it and have light again. 2 days later, pablo, the neighbor from the 1st floor knocked my door to ask me if i had light. we called the real state emergency telephone and surprisingly a man came two hours later to fix the electric box at the entrance of the building. he said that the electric system was too old and could burn at any moment. this was the last of many problems that the apartment had given me, so i decided to leave 10 days later. I’ve also migrated to the Netherlands.

Domestic Worker can be an entrepreneur

Posted on

name: Jena / age: 38 / profession: Domestic worker / location: singapore / weekday: Sunday / reference:  We often asked ourselves, is there life after being a migrant domestic worker? My answer is yes! But we need to work hard and be dedicated to achieve this. We also need to learn the basic mathematics earnings – expenses = savings. Every Sunday during my day off I spend some time in studying and sometime in volunteering to serve my fellow domestic workers. I chose the entrepreneurship course because that’ how I see myself after being a domestic worker. On my graduation day, I even received an award ‘best business plan’ which is also based on my own business plan as entrepreneur someday.
