As reported by Kuwait Times An Ethiopian woman exchanged blows with a 22-year-old citizen when he offered her money for sex, and she lodged a complaint at Nugra police station. A security source said the woman told police that a young man offered her money for sex, and when she refused he insulted her verbally, so she beat him, then after an exchange of blows he escaped in his car, and she gave police the license plate number. The young man was arrested and investigation is underway.
The country has an estimate of more than 660,000 such workers, most of them women from Asia and Africa.
Migrant domestic workers in Kuwait constitute nearly a third of the country’s entire workforce yet are excluded from the main labor law that protects other workers’ rights.
The Kuwait newspaper, Al-Jarida, published the text of the new law, which grants domestic workers the right to a weekly day off, 30 days of annual paid leave, a 12-hour working day with rest, and an end-of-service benefit of one month a year at the end of the contract, among other rights.
