The increase was made when Singaporean agencies agreed after the Association of Employment Agencies Singapore (AEAS) come to an agreement with the Philippine Embassy three years ago to avoid exchange rate fluctuations.

A minimum wage of $400 was set by the Philippine government for domestic helpers.

The Philippine Embassy estimates that about 70,000 of the 227,100 domestic helpers in Singapore are Filipinos.
