Your concern trolling is noted, OP

No one is concern trolling R1. This is genuinely disturbing. You should hear the stories I've heard from family in Qatar.

He learned it from Western colonialism, so it's not his fault.

40 million victims around the world. I wonder if just a few of those might be in Africa and the Islamic Middle East.

One hears of it in India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, as well as Saudi Arabia. There are other countries where live-in servants are treated no better than slaves: Philippines, Iran, Singapore, and Thailand, and the UAE. I'm not making light of it, just that most people are aware of it.

Alex Tizon wrote about his Filipino family's slave in the Atlantic. It was interesting, sad and clearly something people didn't want to know about.

Wasn’t there that “maid” in Dubai whose “employer” stood by laughing as she struggled to maintain her grip on the outside of a window she was “asked” to clean many stories high?

Yes R8. They treat them horribly. One poor girl in Qatar was sp abused it even caused concern over there. Raped repeatedly in every way by her employer every day, beaten brutally by him and the wife, refused food, bathing, kept locked up like a dog until being rescued.

Well, you must all keep in mind that slavery wasn't legally outlawed in Saudia Arabia until 1962. Give us a break -- it takes time to get people used to the idea that servants are people too!

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
