Economy, tax incentives & labor conditions
Migrant workers, particularly women, are frequently subjected to blatant abuse, such as non-payment of wages, forced confinement, rape and physical violence. In recent years reports of serious cases of abuse towards domestic migrant workers have continued to flood in. What is more, migrant workers are regularly condemned to death and executed.
Trade union rights continue to be non-existent. The new labour law still does not give workers the right to organise, bargain or strike.
Wages are fixed by employers, based on the nature of the work and the nationality of the worker. Even in big multinational companies, Saudi and Western employees are paid at least 30 to 50 per cent more than workers from other parts of the world.
