Most do­mes­tic work­ers are treated in a fair way

7 Days in Dubai - - COMMUNITY -

Al­most all do­mes­tic work­ers come to work un­der strange peo­ple in to­tally dif­fer­ent cul­ture and en­vi­ron­ment to earn and sup­port their fam­i­lies at home. A mi­nor­ity of do­mes­tic helpers face ver­bal abuse, sex­ual abuse or even rape, phys­i­cal and men­tal tor­ture and even death. But it’s only worth men­tion­ing that the ma­jor­ity of them are be­ing treated fairly well, re­ceiv­ing salaries on time, get­ting in­cre­ments, good food, din­ners out with the fam­ily, even trips abroad ... in other words, be­ing treated as part of the fam­ily.
