Biggest shame of somalis in UAE

So here's the thing, in UAE somalis are not allowed to work as housemaids. You legally can not work as a housemaid in UAE if you're somali. Its the same for arabs. People who work those jobs are indonesians, ethopians , filipinos, and other west africans and south east asians. What happens to these workers is that they are like slaves basically. They work long hours without rest cleaning a huge ass house, cleaning tons of dishes, taking care of kids etc. Its said that the houseowners cant even stand seeing a maid rest, and would give her a job. They are also tortured, mostly filipinos. There are horrific stories out there, from getting burned, to making the maids naked then dipping them in ICE while blasting AC full on. Not to mention the beatings. Now this is the reality of a maid in UAE.

Somali women are migrating there illegally and sometimes legally to work those maid jobs that they are not even allowed to work. Whats worse is somalis are getting hired by people who dont want to pay the high salary of getting a southeast asian maid legally. So they get paid less to do much worse. A lot of them get caught and deported for working as maids. They still degrade themselves by doing it. These guys even decided to get rid of the privileges by asking our government to negotiate with UAE to make working as maids legal for somalis. Why are somalis doing this to themselves? Is the poverty back in the country that bad? Where is our pride?

We need to stop our image from getting worse.

Somali maids exist in uae but its dangerous having one. If the government finds out you own a somali maid you get fined 50,000 DHS
 
We don’t know what they’re going through, they’re families might be having a hard time so they have to find any job that would hire them. the Emirati people that are at fault.

True. But there are other jobs that are better off. A lot of these egyptians and sudanis in uae are dirt poor. But they never work as maids. They find other jobs such as bus assistants. Some of these egyptians you wont believe how gajoo they are. They literally one time in ramdhan came and stole some food we had walking the street in ramdhan. Also, most dont even work for emirates but whoever else they can.
