KUWAIT CITY, April 8: At a time when the issue of hiring domestic workers is discussed at every level, MP Khalil Al- Saleh has submitted a joint parliamentary query to the Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Anas Al Saleh and Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Khalid Al- Jarrah Al-Sabah on the causes for delay in activating the Domestic Workers Law and the procedures for the establishment of a company to recruit domestic workers.

Al-Saleh explained the lack of seriousness in tackling the crisis of domestic workers has led to worsening the situation and massive hikes in prices which has put a burden on the citizens and their livelihood. He said in spite of linking the domestic workers issue directly to the reality faced by a citizen and its impact on the income of families, the government inability is staring in the face because the domestic workers law passed by the National Assembly has yet to be activated.
