Riyadh: Shoura Council members expressing concern have called for an investigation into the reasons for which 86,000 housemaids ran away from their employers in one year alone. Members also said that it is a serious problem and it will have adverse effects to the local economy and security.
Vice President of the Health Committee, Abdullah Al-Otaibi asked to set up a special committee to find the reasons for the issue. Some leader said that they escape because of the non-payment of salaries, lack of food and maltreatment.
