KUWAIT CITY, May 29: The owner of the oldest domestic workers recruitment office Bassam Al-Shimmari said the decision of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI) while determining the latest labor recruitment costs did not take into account the costs of recruitment and the cost of airline tickets, reports Al-Jarida daily.
Al-Shimmari, who has worked in the field for more than 20 years, told the daily how a private company that wants to make a profit can be compared to a government company that sets itself a small profit margin on the issue of laborimport? He stressed that this decision deprives officials of private companies from the introduction of skilled labor, forcing them to bring workers over the age of forty or fifty to compensate for the difference in prices.
He said that this decision which was arrived at on a feasibility study is not sound. How you can bring a worker costing the company about $3,500 at a price of only 900 dinars, he asked. He said his private company, which has a capital of around 300,000 dinars, is more effective than its government counterpart, which has a capital of KD 3 million.
