Shortage of domestic aides as Ramadan approaches

Ramadan is around the corner and with it comes an increased demand for and black-marketeering of domestic helpers.
According to Abdullah Nashmi, director of a recruitment office in Jeddah, before Ramadan, the demand for domestic workers increases so much that the transfer of a housemaid can reach up to SR50,000, and domestic workers also demand increases in their salaries. Sometimes they seek more than SR6,000 during Ramadan.
He also said they picked up few messages on social networking sites where availability of housemaids is advertised for work during Ramadan. Such messages are showing up on social networking sites such as WhatsApp where a broker puts mobile phone numbers to communicate with an agent to provide housemaids for Ramadan.
According to Yahya Al-Maqbool, chairman of another recruitment agency in Jeddah, majority of the domestic workers, local brokers, sponsors and relatives exploit the season.
He stressed that such people who exploit the season should be punished and tough sanctions should be applied on practitioners, and the ministry should monitor such behavior, which is harming the area of recruitment and work in Saudi Arabia.
