Firms need to of­fer salaries that re­flect the cost of liv­ing in the UAE

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS... -

“Dubai is be­com­ing a mas­sive con­tra­dic­tion in terms of earn­ings and the cost of liv­ing. If salaries are fall­ing then as we all know the cost of liv­ing needs to as well. If in­fla­tion con­tin­ues I fear peo­ple will con­tinue to leave and will stop fre­quent­ing places that are ex­pen­sive to dine in or shop in and lets not even go there ref high rents and costs of liv­ing. Yes Dubai is al­ways go­ing to have its tourists but even they are drop­ping in num­bers ow­ing to eco­nomic fac­tors, GBP weak, Rus­sian econ­omy slow, O&G down­turn knock­ing re­lated SME’s over like nine pins. If the jobs are not here and the pay is not here then peo­ple are not here to sus­tain growth at a level that the city needs.”
