    Yaar I won't condone bad behavior either way and I feel for any Pakistani laborer who is mistreated anywhere in the world ! But with respect to the bolded part : it does work both ways do I need to remind you how much in 'remittances' we receive from those ex-pats....imagine if they were all fired or replaced with some other country's citizens...I'm sure the Indians wouldn't mind sending more in' !

    well educated and well-to-do Pakistanis have it easy in the gulf and are often looked up to. A neighbour of ours was a business contractor and he was working directly with some sheikhs; there are many stories of rich Pakistanis making a good name for themselves and of course making good money in those countries

    but majority of the Pakistanis in these countries are just labourers working hard to make a buck and send back home. They live in compounds, packed like sardines.

    UAE has been starting to take the whole "labor rights" thing seriously.....on extremely hot summer days, they are told not to work. Pay and conditions slightly increased.

    still you hear about workers committing suicide sometimes (which is never a solution, it's a cowards way out). But then sometimes you'll hear about workers who made enough money, went home to their beloved country and then set up small business.

    i hail from FATA, many of the people have relatives who are working in Dubai, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia.......in the past, some of the homes had no air conditioner just one panka and one tiny television. Worker sent home money and now some of the homes have AC, nice television, and other such things.

    our economy is not in the greatest shape nowdays, Pakistan's macroeconomic stability partly relies on these expatriate (remittances) earnings being sent back to Pakistan. I believe remittances nowdays are highest they have ever been.



    so once again --- these "miskeen" may be mistreated and living in a shyt condition. But they are doing a very honourable thing for themselves and especially their families. Hopefully Pakistan side will have more respect for its own people and stand up for their rights in these foreign countries.

    NGOs, unions and activist groups should be allowed to represent them and ensure that their human rights are not trampled on


    otherwise as Imran bhai suggested, they have option to leave and come home

    That really doesn't state as an excuse to skimp on an immigrant's rights.In fact,I would accuse you of condoning such behavior for cheap monetary gains.

    And Indians as sloppy seconds? C'mon dawg !!!

    Tuh mujhe nahi samajh raha hai...how can a person's rights be equated to any monetary dependance or transaction? Given on your parallel,even prostitution or child labor would be legal.Yes, our governments have failed in securing many rights to immigrants but that doesn't necessarily deem the treatment doled out to them as morally or legally correct.

    so what does all this tell you?

    our state services are sub-par (at best)......and we are failing to invest in our own people


    not failing -- we HAVE failed
