Sushma Swaraj

A majority of the people stuck in Saudi Arabia are unskilled workers who are not very literate. Such people are easy pickings for agents who lure them with the promise of a respectable job and good money, but end up working as bonded labour. Ideally, the government should train and empower these unskilled workers before they move abroad for employment. They should be educated on the rules and regulations prevailing in the country, and apprised of who and where to seek help in case of any emergency. Initiating steps like these could reduce the occurrence of such cases in the future.
