Domestic workers in Saudi November 13, 2006

Posted by Aella in Saudi Arabia.

Have just started a quest in order to find out how to get a full time maid here in Saudi Arabia. Doesn’t seem to be the easiest thing around. As I searched the net for any info I bumped into some seriously depressing reading.

And of course there is a lot more to read. I mean how sick can people get? Forbidding maids to leave the house, sexually abuse them, beat them, giving them crap food and letting them work 24-7. Did they think they bought a person or hired one? And who do they think they are themselves treating people like this? Really sickens me.

It’s a sad fact as it happens not only in Saudi but in all the other Gulf countries. I don’t know how these people think, it’s like they think they are uber or something. Really sick.
