"Shameless Sons of Zayid media: KSA and Qatar abuse maids but not us"

"But for many domestics in the region, the challenges are more common and more banal, starting with the number of hours they work. Domestic workers in Saudi Arabia and Qatar work 63.7 and 60 hours per week on average respectively, according to a study on domestic workers worldwide released by the International Labour Organization (ILO) this week. Domestic workers in these countries put in longer hours than employees in any other profession - a finding that experts say extends throughout the Gulf." (thanks Basim)
