Abstract

Foreign domestic helpers are a significant part of Hong Kong’s population, but the underlying motivations behind their choice of gathering location during their days off is largely unknown. Our goal was to determine what motivates foreign domestic helpers to gather at particular locations. We concluded that the motivations of foreign domestic helpers are mainly extrinsic and relate to the availability of nearby services as well as social factors.
