JEDDAH – Recruitment of Ethiopian house-maids, arriving in the Kingdom within the next few days, is expected to curb demand for Indonesian labor by 30 percent.

Sources at the Ministry of Labor said Ethiopia authorized its nationals to work in Saudi Arabia without placing any conditions for recruitment except the legal formalities.

The country has set the monthly salary for house-maids at SR700. Recruitment fees will range from SR4,000 to SR6,000, Al-Watan reported.
Ali Al-Qurashi, member of the Foreign Recruitment Committee at Jeddah’s Chamber of Commerce, dismissed news on recruitment from East European countries like Bulgaria, Ukraine and Russia. However, recruitment from Islamic countries like Tajikistan, Kyrghizistan, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo is in the pipeline, he said.

The recruitment will carry a number of restrictions including a minimum age of 40 for the workers, he added.
Faisal Al-Qatami, member of the recruitment committee at the chamber said several inquiries were received for recruitment from Eastern Europe, but no response was received from the National Recruitment Committee or from the Ministry of Labor.

“I expect recruitment from these countries will be banned,” Al-Qatami said.

    For the past 17 or so years, the main export of the woyanaetplf distructive anti-Ethiopia regime has bee cows and girls. In today’s tplfwoyae regime, girls and boys of all ages are like commodities like coffee has been.

    For the past many, many years, Saudi Arabia and other Arab regimes have been supporting all types of anti-Ethiopia organizations and had supported ELF,TPLF, and other anti-Ethiopia organizations in material and money.

    Their reward from tplfwoyanae anti-Ethiopia regime has been overdue;well, patience has brought a good reward from Meles’s regime to the Saudi’s regime. Meles gave away the most fertile land ready to be farmed and grow exotic fruits and other edible commodities, and of course, on the side girls and boys to the Saudi’s market.

    All recruitment agents in Ethiopia are close friends and supporters of Meles’s regime. They have been making million dollars in profit on exported innocent boys and girls of all ages, mainly 13 years-old and upto 41 years-old.

    Making money on the citizens is bad and sinful and of course,criminal.Although, the maids were told there will be money to make, what they are going face is a harsh treatment from the-would-be lucky owners and possibly death.

    One thing very clear is that the money, these maids would receive will never assure them that they will have a better life than they had while in Meles’s regime;rather, it is like going from bad situtations into worse or from worst situation into bad situations. There won’t be any change; it is like, this or that are bad or/and worse.
