Let­ter writer: ‘Yes there are jobs out there but em­ploy­ers al­ways go for cheap op­tion’

7 Days in Dubai - - FAMILY -

“You did not read the let­ter clearly. The point is: at this time ex­pats are po­si­tion­ing them­selves as so des­per­ate to stay here that they write des­per­ately to ev­ery so­cial me­dia plat­form about their woes. Greedy em­ploy­ers (who ac­tu­ally DO need them) use their ad­ver­tised woes as a tool against them. And this is the let­ter point: stop giv­ing them that ap­pre­hend. They need you and the more and louder the woe the lower the wage. YOU are hand­ing em­ploy­ers a power and cre­at­ing a fear amongst job seek­ers that “I had bet­ter take this low wage be­cause I have seen on­line how hard it is to get a job so I should be happy that I have been se­lected”. My team are the best and are treated and com­pen­sated as such. They are not des­per­ate for work and would tell me where to go if I started to play games with them. I need them. They need me.”

EM­PLOYER

“What’s your point? If a job can be done by some­one cheaper than you, I will take them. Just like you look for a cheaper garage to ser­vice your car. Makes sense to me.”
