Deep in Hong Kong's always-impressive financial statistics is data on the territory's domestic workers. If you don't already know, Indonesians comprise the largest single group of domestic workers in Hong Kong and number in the hundreds of thousands.
The workers perform menial jobs, such as cleaning house, laundry, cooking, baby-sitting, grocery shopping and caring for the elderly.
Imagine if Hong Kong's residents had to perform these chores themselves. Activities at the Hong Kong Stock Exchange or at the city's hundreds of lush shopping malls would screech to a halt.
Hong Kong has 129,612 migrant workers from Indonesia and 128,630 from the Philippines. Migrant workers from Thailand, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and India number only 7,356, according to reports from the the Hong Kong Immigration Office.
Five years ago, Filipinos comprised the largest single sent the largest number of migrant workers to the former British colony. In 2005, 60,000 Filipinos worked in Hong Kong. More Indonesian workers came to Hong Kong, after learning that life had been pretty good for migrant workers.
