Reader comment on item: Saudis Import Slaves to America

Submitted by Bader (United States), Jun 24, 2005 at 11:09

I want to ask the author about the cases he mentioned about Saudi persons. What happened at the end of these cases. Were they proved to be right? What was the court decision?

The whole thing behind these issues is money. Usually the salary of home workers in Gulf countries is $ 200 per month which is reasonable if we know that the average salary of a home owner there is $ 2,000. This means about 10% of the home owner income goes to the worker. However, when a family from Saudi Arabia come to the US with their home worker, and if the worker is smart enough, the home worker can ask for more money since the $ 200 monthly salary here is considered nothing. Please note that the salary of the home owner is still the same.

I hope that this will clarify some of the confusion in the public mind who are just waiting to hear anything bad about Muslims.
