According to some Twitter users, the real cost maid recruitment in the Philippines only rages from KD 280 to KD 300 but then, but offices of domestic labor recruitment are charging each Filipino applicant KD 1,250. This is a clear manifestation of exploitation.
It is also said that Kuwaitis hire Filipino maids then give them permission to work in cafes as long as they will allow their sponsors to take KD 500/year. A Filipina domestic helper and also works in a confectionary shop testified to these claims. She’s paying her sponsor KD 450/year and earning a salary of KD 140/ month upon working starting from 9:00 am until 10:00 pm.
According to her, she’s working better in the shop rather than in her sponsor’s house. She is also hoping that the government will help them acquire their rights. via arabtimesonline
