Don't hold a Damocles sword over anyone's head now...The hapless servant-maid is out of work in many gated communities and townships. It is not her fault at all. When the middle-classes have a bit of money, they can manage. They also work from home.
But the poor servant maids and such others do not have any security at all. They need our support. Similarly, there are so many employers who have acted ruthlessly and sacked so many people now. You just cannot have a Damocles sword hanging over anyone's head now. When the so-called lockdown is relaxed and the production starts once again, the same employee, the same worker, will prove to be your main strength. It does not pay to keep them in a tight leash now and with a Damocles sword hanging over their head. To the maximum extent possible, in spite of some cuts in salary, which is understandable, the employees should be taken care of.
And people like the servant maids should be paid in full so that they have their head over water. The poor people deserve our help and our assistance now. Similarly, if the rich come forward with serving the poor with cooked food, encourage such efforts through your voluntary contributions so that the poor can at least survive this crisis. Never have the Damocles sword over anyone's head now...

I remembered that in my office we used to have a maid. For some reason she has not come to our office since lockdown. We only work on alternate days so I did not care to ask about her whereabouts. Maid-servants have it the worst. Daily wage workers and maids go to different places everyday to fulfill their needs and during the pandemic they are deserted.
We must have a way to preserve them. Maids and wage workers should have associations presiding over them. They must be insured and safeguarded. That is my takeaway from Corona pandemic situation.
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
