Saudi Arabian princes are reportedly using foreign maids to fill their palaces and are selling these licenses to ordinary citizens. But other Saudis apply for these licenses and get them, if they have connections to government agencies. The country is estimated to have as many as 50,000 undocumented domestic workers. To be fair to the victims, the abuse of foreign maids is a symptom of a deeper political malaise.
It is difficult to gauge the abuses of foreign maids in Saudi Arabia due to the lax regulations of the country. According to Al Arabiya, more than 3 million خادمات work in squalor and live in deplorable conditions. In addition to living under the same conditions as their Saudi employers, there are also those who are working illegally in Saudi Arabia. They are exploiting their employers and earning less money than legal domestic workers.
The employment of foreign maids in Saudi Arabia is a luxury for the wealthy. Many of the families in Saudi Arabia are not able to afford to employ their own maids. They are employed by the richest members of society who use them to demonstrate prestige. In addition, the low participation of women in the country makes foreign maids a necessity as opposed to a luxury. Despite the plight of the maids, it is clear that the country must take steps to protect the welfare of its citizens.
While foreign maids are becoming increasingly popular, it remains difficult to find jobs for them in Saudi Arabia. Often, women are unable to find employment due to the lack of skills. In such cases, their husbands may suggest that they go to another Middle Eastern country, but family members discourage them from doing so. Eventually, they borrow money to buy a plane ticket to a foreign country, but the government has stopped all Middle Eastern migration for the moment.
As a result of these laws, maids in Saudi Arabia are no longer denied passports, and their employers will have to pay them monthly. They will also be allowed to communicate with their families and take a day off. Until last year, the country did not recognize maids as migrant workers, limiting their employment to just 15 hours a day. In the United Kingdom, foreign maids are not protected by nationality and are not allowed to work overtime.
While the contract states that maids can take off on days off, rights groups worry about enforcement in the Gulf. It is unclear how many days a maid should be off at any given time. Although Saudi Arabia is not prohibited from employing foreign maids, it has few laws regarding the working hours of domestic workers. Some of these contracts are not legally binding, so it is important to read the contract carefully.
