NEPAL BANS Women Under 30 from Working in the Middle East
Extreme measures are taken to protect young Nepali women:

Kathmandu, Nepal -- Nepal has banned women under the age of 30 from working in Persian Gulf nations amid increasing concerns over abuse and exploitation.
Nepalese women are among thousands of Asians who travel to the Middle East in search of employment. They often arrive willingly, but subsequently face conditions that the U.S. State Department says is indicative of forced labor -- the withholding of passports, restrictions on movement, nonpayment of wages for work up to 20 hours a day, threats, deprivation of food and sleep, and physical or sexual abuse.
The age bar is aimed at preventing some of the abuse, Raj Kishore Yadav, Nepal's minister of information and communication, said Thursday. He said the hope is that the risks are lower with more mature women.

Women's Rights Division is saying:

"The government is right to be concerned about abuse against migrant women, but the correct response is not to stop them from going, but to ensure they can migrate with guarantees for their safety,"


Guarantees for their safety? Good luck with that. Just so unrealistic.

They go with hopes and dreams of sending money back to their poverty stricken families - what a nightmare they end up in.

Every country should ban their citizens from working in, or traveling to The middle east. Let them clean their own toilets.

THEY SHOULD KNOW BETTER THAN TO TRY TO WORK IN ISRAEL.

It's a scam. They are either forced into sex slaves or killed for their organs.

Arab men's hospitality. Those arabs are scums of the earth and all their countries must be destroyed. Fucking dirtbags. They lose millions here in casions in a night on gambling and hookers. They're the most sex addicted men I've ever come across. I cant wait for the day when there's nothing left in the middle east except sand and our flags in it.

I actually just watched a documentary on the slaves of Dubai. They are approached in their homeland and promised 300 US dollars a month, but they have to give the employer 2000 USD to get them over there. They are told that they would work for six months to pay it back and then they would start sending money to their families. When they arrive their passports are taken away and they only end up earning 100 USD a month. They are only given rice and potatoes to eat and they get meat or fish once or twice a month.

It's really fucked up, and the worst part is they can't leave till the money is paid off. It usually takes over two years.

And they become so desperate that the suicide attempts are over the top:

A hospital in Kuwait had an entire ward devoted to domestic workers who had spinal cord and back injuries from botched escape attempts or attempted suicide from high-rise residential buildings.
