‘12 hours a day has be­come the norm’ – UAE bot­tom in work-life bal­ance poll

7 Days in Dubai - - FAMILY -

“Do we have a choice? Looks like it’s a pol­icy – the ex­act con­tract is never fol­lowed. I for one would pre­fer the 8hrs ses­sion but I am not given that op­tion.”

ALEXAN­DER SALT

“12 hours for 6 days and one day off, very un­fair and in­hu­mane es­pe­cially in sales, pro­duc­tion in in­dus­trial ar­eas.”

HERA CARESUSA VILLAHERMOSA

“Yes that’s true, some­times it’s over that 12 hours. And peo­ple are scared to say that be­cause they will get fired from work un­for­tu­nately.”

ELSHOD TALIPOV

“Some in­fe­rior work­ers started the trend of stay­ing late at work to im­press the boss and it has caught up with ev­ery­one now.”

ANNE LOBO

“12 hrs job daily is NOR­MAL in Toronto, Canada, in vi­o­la­tion of Cana­dian & On­tario Labour laws. Cana­dian em­ploy­ers vi­o­late the labour laws & law looks the other way. This hap­pens EV­ERY­DAY in Canada – the coun­try which the en­tire world esp Asians & Mid­dleast­ern­ers are DY­ING to im­mi­grate to.”
