Expatriates living in Kuwait may be pleased to hear that the government has set a minimum wage salary for workers in the private sector.
The minister of social affairs and labour, Mohammad Al-Afasi, announced on Wednesday April 14th that no employees of private companies will be hired below the KWD 60 (£135) wage per month.
Previously there has been no such minimum wage available in the public sector, which has led to an informal two-tier system whereby Kuwaiti nationals receive higher wages than the expatriate labour force, even those who work in skilled positions.
Expatriates also do not receive the same benefits as Kuwaiti nationals and must pay for education and healthcare, which is why expats considering moving to Kuwait may be wise to take out expatriate healthcare insurance.
The announcement follows news that the Gulf state would implement better working conditions and rights for its expatriate workforce, such as scrapping the condition that foreign workers can only be brought into the country under the sponsorship of a Kuwaiti employer.
