Abu Dhabi cuts expat jobs to trim costs, UAE Economy - Maktoob News:
"ABU DHABI: Wealthy Gulf Arab emirate Abu Dhabi has laid off large numbers of foreign workers as it looks to lower costs and promote jobs for citizens, several people familiar with the matter said.
Hundreds more expatriate jobs could be on the line in the near future at Abu Dhabi government departments, two sources at the offices said, adding exact numbers are not available."
Just a couple sentences about Emirate nationals taking back their country. So when will Kuwait follow? It seems like Kuwait is drowning in foreign nationals. When I came 7 years ago there were hardly any foreign nationals driving around. Today they are everywhere and with attitudes to boast. During my morning commute I notice the growing number of foreign national drivers. I stop counting half way through my drive as it seems I can't keep up with the amount. For all you guys who think driving a Charger is cool well it's not anymore. It looks like the foreign nationals have chosen it as their work vehicle and they are everywhere.
I've read about Kuwait limiting the residencies of the foreign nationals and hiring more citizens. I sure hope so because Kuwait is too crowded. Problems with traffic and electricity is growing. They have taken over the streets with their taxis and cause accidents when they slam on their brakes looking for customers. If there are jobs that nationals don't want to do then let the bedoons have them instead of foreign nationals at least the bedoon would be able to work and take care of their families.
Some of you may not like what I write and so be it. The citizens need to take back their country instead of letting the foreign nationals run everything. Just go to Sheraton round-about on Friday and you will see the chaos, you would never believe you were in Kuwait.
I can't wait for the comments to roll in.
