That is on the ABC ?
No I don't watch free to air let alone left wing infested rubbish you see on the ABC.

Saudi is an interesting country full of contradictions.

Over the years I have had offers to work over there but the few I know that have talked me out of it. One of my wife's cousins has worked all over the Middle East, there are some scary places where you don't want to get on the wrong side of authorities.

Was the Behind Closed Doors Story ?

Ive turned down an offer for Doha and KSA because despite what people here think of me, I have a moral compass that would not allow me to work for such immoral countries.

ABC is ok when you pick and choose the shows, tonight's was worth watching.

A Saudi diplomat kept a Filipino woman locked in his house waiting on his family hand on foot, and made her sign payslips for wages she never got.

Yes that can be done but might cause bigger problems and does not address the issue.

I think they might be able to expel certain individuals which is more likely but I doubt anyone will be held accountable.

No I want it de-funded, if your right what ever has some public use might survive, I just don't watch free to air at all.

Yes the idea of compound living and the gross hypocrisy of Arabic culture is a big turn off.

I wanna hear from the 'global marketeers' about how the cost of labour is a resource and poverty is a resource to be exploited etc....

Let's hear from aqua about how these workers should make themselves more valuable to their overseer and rise from $250 a month to $251, but only if they give sex on the side as well like good house servants...

Well done, thou good and faithful servant!  There'll be an extra shilling in your Christmas stocking this year....

Yeah they take a day to get their links sorted and the transcript will also be there.

Hey where's the guy who always rushs to post if a cafe worker was underpaid by 5 cents by an Aussie?

He must be on vacation Wink

Do I get the choice of the chicks like Barnaby?  Actually she's not my type.... don't much like the face in frontal view - profile looks OK, but that face has traveled.

There's no competition for South East Asians since the UK stopped exporting pommie domestic servants in the 1950s.

I wonder if there's a connection with Australia's livestock exports to the Middle East?

Reports say that a hell of a lot of the same thing, using mainly women from the same sources, goes on in the ME and also Hong Kong and a few other places that have a heavy reliance on tourism, or where people just want house servants they can exploit.

I suppose the term 'grinding poverty' in reference to The Philippines is the way to look at it.  What I do know is that it is possible to pay a building tradie $10 a day there - not sure now...

Kinda conflicts with the official statement though:-

https://www.psa.gov.ph/content/average-family-income-2015-estimated-22-thousand-...

This looks closer to the truth:-

http://www.worldsalaries.org/philippines.shtml

"Carpenter average salary      PPP $ 546      $ 121"

"Chambermaid average salary      PPP $ 592      $ 131"

- the last figure is 'net monthly income in US dollars' = $40 a week to play with.
