The Kafala is Sometimes called modern day slavery.
Recently, a Celebrity Kuwaiti Blogger Social media star Sondos Alqattan has come under fire for complaining about changes to the country's Kafala System.
It now gives Filipino Migrant workers the right to have days off and to keep their passports.
As you know I did a video on Joanna Demafelis, who was a Filipino domestic worker that was tortured and killed. Her body was found in a freezer.
Here's what Sondos had to say "For a maid to take off every week, that's four days a month. And we don't know what she'll be doing on those days, with her passport on her." ---"How can you have a servant at home who gets to keep their passport with them?... I don't want a Filipino maid anymore."
Alquatten has been heavily criticised since she posted her video on Instagram. Many have called her remarks racist and have accused her of wanting to have a slave rather than an employee. In addition, many of her Beauty sponsors have canceled her contracts.
To Ms. Sandos, I say Shame on you!
Kuwait like most middle east countries operate a Kafala System, however, the Filipinos are now exempted from the system due to recent changes in the law. These changes were as a result of President Rodrigo Duterte placing a ban on OFW to Kuwait as a result of Filipino abuse and mistreatment. The ban was lifted when the Philippines and Kuwait signed a Bi-lateral MOI (memorandum of agreement). This MOI protects the rights of Filipino workers.
In many places this system allows employers to control the migrant worker and terminate their contracts at will. The confiscation of passport and extremely poor working conditions have longed been a complaint of human rights groups.
This video examines a KUWAITI BLOGGERS DISGUSTING REMARKS ABOUT FILIPINOS - CONDEMNED.
The question of the day. How do you feel about Ms. Sando's remarks? Was it racist or just a statement of displeasure? I'd like to know your thoughts. Put them in the comments section of this video. And remember to like share and subscribe.
