"Al-Madinah newspaper reported recently that the rate of domestic servants fleeing their sponsors is as high as 70 percent. When they flee, to find jobs with higher salaries, their sponsors lose large amounts of money spent recruiting them and paying for their visas." (Notice that the sympathy of the article is with the employers, and not with the servants. And there is no curiosity on the part of the writer as to the high right of flight of servants.)
