Everyone wants a piece of the cake

So apparently the strikes that happened over the summer with the Bengali workers were organized by small cleaning companies in order to break the monopoly of the bigger companies that are taking all the government contracts.

In the news:-
A kuwaiti man beats his house maid to death during ramadhan because she didn't iron his dishdasha and he was tired and angry from fasting.

I have gone shopping in Fahaheel, and what shocked me were the Kuwaiti men & women treating the Asians as if they were slaves not Human being. I left quickly avoiding raising my blood pressure. What if the oil finishes, will we Kuwaitis still be Kings and look at the rest of the world down? I doubt it.

The song remains the same.

Sad and very very bad.

I hope the man got arrested and charged on homicide.

I am guessing, here, the tribal areas in Kuwait ( Jahra, Fahaheel, Mangaf etc.) must be seeing far higher rates of abuse and violence against women than in the rest of the capital governorate. Yet in terms of reporting crime the numbers may be low in these areas as most foul play gets slyly swept under the carpet.
