From which country was it that Philippine Government ordered a while ago their nationals to leave and return to Philippines because of inhuman treatment by Middle East employers?

Lets hope Thai nurses think twice before falling in the Saudi money trap. They should realize that there are very strict muslim laws that restrict women in their personal life. Plus that temp. foreign workers not seen as equal, and treated accordonly as a 3rd class citizen. And that for 2 years, is a long time.

Any woman, no matter what nationality, should be very wary about accepting supposed positions in countries with reputations as bad as the Saudis for abusing service staff, domestic help and others who are just trying to make some money for their families. BE VERY CAREFUL!
