The Association for Integration and Migration is fighting for the rights of foreign nationals who work as house-cleaners helpers and maids in the Czech Republic. In a campaign called “Do you know who cleans your house?” the association points to the fact that many of the approximately 27, 000 foreign employees from non-EU member states are heavily exploited by home cleaning services. Fearful of losing their jobs, many work for less than the minimal wage, are maltreated and even sexually harassed. The campaign targets both the public with an appeal for people to be more vigilant and the foreign workers themselves informing them about the existence of a help-line where they can seek advice.
