Question on citizen income

Reader comment on item: The Kuwaiti Exception

Submitted by Jack J. Morris (United States), Jan 28, 2006 at 21:30

I once heard that Kuwaitis receive a stipend or income from the government so that he does not have to do physical or other work if he chooses not to. Would you be good enough to let me know if this is true. Thank you very much.

I am pleased to read of so much progress in Kuwait.

There are many benefits Kuwaiti citizens receive, but I don't know of that particular one.
