Expatriates working as teachers in Kuwait could receive a KD 100 (£224) accommodation allowance after the country’s Civil Service Commission (CSC) approved the extra money, the Arab Times reports.
Some 21,000 expats could benefit from the allowance, which could be rolled out to other foreign and national employees working as social and psychological specialists at public schools, pharmacists, customs workers at the Seizure Department, muezzins and imans at the Awqaf Ministry and those with diplomas in banking and insurance, the paper said.
The move comes after Kuwait’s minister of social affairs and labour announced that expatriates working in the country’s private sector would receive a minimum wage of KD 60 (£135), designed to put a stop to the informal two-tier system under which Kuwaiti nationals receive more pay than the expatriate labour force, even those in skilled jobs.
A recent survey by GulfTalent.com found that expatriate populations in Kuwait were falling, whereas Saudi Arabia and Qatar are experiencing a boom in foreign workers moving there for jobs.
