Indian women workers in Saudi Arabia deceived

This video is called Inside Story – The plight of migrant workers in Saudi Arabia.

From the World Socialist Web Site today:

Indian women workers trapped in Saudi Arabia as a result of recruitment scam

Around 30 women from states in southern India are trapped in a shelter in Saudi Arabia. Recruitment agencies in India tricked the women, many of them highly educated and fluent in English, into thinking they were going to jobs other than in domestic service. They only discovered their fate once in Saudi Arabia.

Rich families in Riyadh are demanding the women be held until they are reimbursed for expenses ranging from SR16,000 ($3,200) to SR 40,000 ($8,040) which they claim they incurred to bring the women over from India.
