These women have had it. Around 70% of the foreign maids working in the medieval kingdom of Saud, have packed up their bags and left for (pun intended) “greener pastures”. According to the Khaleej Times, these women have suffered tremendously at the hands of their employers –and for some …masters– with their job status as maid having been reduced to that of a household slave.
“…the rate of domestic servants fleeing their sponsors in Saudi Arabia is as high as 70 per cent. This, coupled with such countries as the Philippines and Indonesia, refusing to send maids to the Kingdom unless their salaries are increased, has given rise to demand for runway maids.
“A source at the Indonesian Embassy said that they receive about 10 complaints from maids every day. Most of them involve abuse and include severe beatings, suicide, kidnapping, rape, withholding of salary for months and years, sexual harassment and impregnation.”
As for the solution, “They have urged the government to look into bringing maids from other countries to solve the shortage of maids.”
Oh I get it, the solution is not to aggressively prosecute the Saudis’ who incorporate the beastly practice of using women as chattel, but to get more foreign maids. More here. *L* KGS
