The recent measures taken by Qatar to provide a secure working environment to tens of thousands of expatriates and protect their human rights have come for huge praise from a majority of expatriate workers.
They said many of the rights enjoyed by the expatriate workers in Qatar are not available in many countries.
Among the measures recently taken by Qatar is the establishment of a fund to support and secure workers, opening of a shelter house to provide assistance and protection to victims of human trafficking and shelter for temporary workers.
In one of the construction projects in the Khraitiyat area, workers’ supervisor Kumar, an Indian, who has been working in Doha for five years, said: “We get good treatment and we get our rights. I have already worked in a number of neighbouring Arab countries before coming to Qatar. What the workers get here is much better than what is available to workers in other countries.”
“For example, we receive our salaries on a monthly basis without delay, which is more important to workers. This is what gives us tranquility and psychological stability because we are able to send money to our families back home on a regular basis,” he said.
He said this is due to the wage protection system as well as to the committees for resolving labour disputes.
