Sur­vey finds low pay is the big­gest cause of stress for em­ploy­ees in MENA

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS -

“A big prob­lem is that as the cost of life in Dubai in­flates so too should the salaries, but they don’t. Rent keeps go­ing up de­spite all the news say­ing that rent is go­ing to de­crease. Food is ex­pen­sive here as well, I mean I saw a guy spend Dhs1,000 in Geant yes­ter­day and he barely had half a trol­ley!!!!!”

TOM JOYNES

“There are no prob­lems here with low pay that you wouldn’t find any­where else in the world. The prob­lems are with un­equal dis­tri­bu­tion of pay lead­ing to feel­ings of in­equal­ity and dis­re­spect.”

LISA KERELIUK

“Very sim­ple, pack up and head home to a “bet­ter life” stress free and stop whin­ing!”

FAVY SIASI

“Cost of rent and liv­ing. Wages not in­creas­ing to keep pace with other cost in­creases. No recog­ni­tion of loy­alty and added value of re­tained staff vs new hired staff.”

LUCY HIVES

“Low pay .... We are all on low pay com­pared to dubai run­away prices.”
