SAUDI WOMEN WANTS DH/HSW's SALARIES TO BE CUT BY HALF OR SR1,000



A campaign was launch in Saudi Arabia to cut down the high wages of domestic helpers or household service workers (HSW) following the austerity measure of the Saudi government.

The wages of housemaids have been standardized at SR2,000 a month.

Saudi women campaigner feel that SR2,000 (P26,000) is high salary and it should be cut down to SR1,000 (P13,000) especially when the income of Saudi families has diminished gradually as a result of austerity measures.

Saudi women have formed a group that is asking Saudi families not to pay salaries higher than SR1,000 to their maids.
The Saudi women's group also wants to stop the monopoly of housemaids who work illegally after running away from their sponsors.


As of now, there are 40,000 Filipina domestic helpers in Saudi Arabia.

Last 2012, a bilateral labor agreement is signed by Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz that sets the minimum salary of Filipina domestic helpers in Saudi Arabia to US$400 and entitles them to a weekly day off, an annual holiday of at least 30 days, the right to keep their passports, and a strict 9- hours-work-per-day policy.

Because of the said agreement, deployment of Pinoy DH in Saudi has increased from 11,000 in 2013 to 30,000 in 2014 and then 70,000 in 2015.

According to Recruitment Consultant Emmanuel Geslani, the number has down to 40,000 due to the oil crisis.

Due to the said crisis, the Kingdom implements austerity measures such as cutting allowances and benefits for government employees, decreasing the demand for domestic helpers among Saudi households. (Source: Saudi Gazette, Rappler)

Wag nalang po mag apply ang mga DH dito sa Saudi,kung alam nyo lng po kung gaano kahirap ang work nila dito.halos walang pahinga at walang tulog.apply nalang po sila sa ibang bansa.dahil kung bababaan pa ang sahod nila,hindi na po makatarungan

The fact is..all the statement above was not true..our salary is only 1500sar not 2000sar..we are working 18hrs everyday..no day off..sometimes no food..if you less our salary..do you think its enough that salary for 18hrs everyday?especially month of ramadan?maybe the philippine government stop sending a domestic helper here in saudi

POEA....please stop sending DH in KSA or Middle East. Implement ban or face never ending consequences of abuse, rape murder and etc. due to a lot of reasons contract substitution, no off days, no vacation, delayed salary, maltreatment and a lot more. Mahirap ba intindihin yan ? Each affected worker come home either mentally sick, emotionally / psychologically disturbed, physically abused and disfigured, with near death or traumatic experience . Others even did not make it. Plain and simple ...HUWAG NA MAGPADALA NG DH SA GITNANG SILANGAN !

Walang natupad ni isa sa kasunduan. 2000sr? 1500sr lang pasahod dito 24oras ang trabaho. Kulang sa pagkain at kulang sa tulog kaya nagkakaroon ng communication problem between employee and employer. Totoong may maswerte sa amo Pero majority sa mga Filipina DH inaabuso.

Susme kakarampot na nga lang babawasan pa? Uwi na lang ako aplay sa iba .Oo nga mabait mga amo ko pero ang trabaho ko naman walang katapusan.Pianag tiya tiyagaan ko na lang pero kung babawasan pa eh no choice need to change destination na

1000sar??ano to?Di naman lahat ng employer eh sinusunod Ang nakasaad sa kontrata, binabawasan pa nila ng gastos sa pagkain at personal hygiene, samantalang bago pa sila pumirma sa kontrata alam na nila ang obligasyun nila sa kanilang katulong,at pagminalas pa,bugbug at sipaw at pang aagrabyado pa Ang aabutin..
Kapit sa patalim ang Sistema, walang day off pang binibigay,bawal lumabas,minsan bawal pa patient telepono,baliktarin kaya natin..Kayo Ang nasa papel ng mga manggagawa na kinailangang lumayo sa pamilya para lang maitaguyod Ang kahirapan ng pamilya..DOLE... at sa Pangulong DUTERTE sana po ay gagawa kayo ng paraan para maprotektahan naman kamingaw MGS naghahanap Buhay ng marangal dito sa bansang banyaga..
