House maids, drivers, cleaners and other such staff are vital, I am sure we all agree. So are policemen, fire fighters and guards. How much do we appreciate them in our countries? How much do we appreciate them in KSA? No matter how much we praise them, do we pay them right?
Today, whether you sponsor your labor or not, they can make you fall to the ground simply by refusing to work. And, they are doing that. Salaries are going up whether you like it or not.
Having staff is a privilege, not a Right..people here should start to realize..both Saudi and non Saudi. They should have realized this a long time ago. But, it took and is taking many instances of rebellion from staff for them to start thinking, sadly. Today, in all honesty, the privileged class is the labor class and they are even developing the attitude to show this and remind us.
Do not mess with us..it says clearly on their forehead and expression ” you need me, I don’t need you, because everyone needs me- you lazy lumps of corruption!”
I find this development fascinating. I have always maintained that these people are very important so respect them. They clean our mess!
I was imagining that for a day even, if labor in KSA refuse to work..what would happen. Imagine that! All hell would break lose. I recently heard that Sri Lanka has stopped sending house maids to KSA. This, after Philippines renegotiated salaries! My dear, slavery does not go well with the current setup of this world. You slap them, they slap you. It is that simple. Them being slapped by you has been the norm but you being slapped by them is great humiliation..
Police officers, I have always felt, get less than they deserve. The CEO of a company does not die to protect you, an officer does..
Yes, I pay my staff well. I respect them and I am always grateful for their excellent service. I HAVE to overlook many of their mistakes as there is a God that overlooks mine!
Be so, to be privileged, have a bigger heart than your pocket. Just being rich does not make you win hearts.
Phew!!..when will humans learn to be humans…
