Persuasive Speech Outline Amur Saif AlAamri 93070 Topic: Housemaids should not be hired. 1- An opener on areas of agreement: I can admit that we all live under or encounter pressure in our daily life. This pressure can be triggered through studying, working, or having a bunch of home chores. In fact, I don’t doubt that we all would ask for help to manage or overcome such stress. Some people would seek a help from their siblings and some other people would ask for help from their close relatives.
But what about those who would search for help from foreigners to take care of their house works? As they pretend..! Do these foreigners have special qualifications on this profession? Are they trustworthy? Do you all guarantee 100% that your house and family would be safe? Transition: That’s why ladies and gentlemen; I am standing here in front of you this afternoon arguing that we should not hire maids in our houses.

Guys, the world has changed and there’s very big possibility that such thing will occur in our country. Therefore, we all should stand in front of this issue and be against it. Transition: Having clarified the consequences led to your home environment safety by having a housemaid, let me now tell you the consequences led to children by maids abusing them. 5- Third argument: Child abuse * Physical abuse * Mental abuse Transition: 6- Summary: 7- Memorable ending remark:
