A typical workday for domestic workers in Saudi Arabia is between 15 to 18 hours in a day.
Imagine somebody working straight for 18 hours in a day out of 24 hours and they pay them about $5 to $7 per day and guess what some of this employers would refuse to pay the employees for a long time.
In fact sometimes for years, they may not pay the employees. They would say we are giving you food, we’re giving you a place to sleep even if it’s outside. They would say; what do you need the money for. So many employers are actually killed their employees if they keep asking for their money. There are no off days, no rest hours, there is no vacation, no nothing.
