Many Indians Returning as Gulf Job Prospects Turning Low
Due to a reported slow down of the economy, job prospects in Gulf nations are decreasing. Indian families who had been living in Dubai earlier are now returning home due to changing work policies and rising prices there.
Those who had shifted to Dubai a decade ago now having difficulty to sustain their families as oil prices take a plunge in the international market. “Education here is expensive. I have two daughters and one of them goes to kindergarten now. My wife had a job too but since we had two children, juggling between work and family became challenging in the absence of a domestic help, which does not come cheap here unlike in India,” says Sahil, a retail employee from Aligarh who went to Dubai eight years ago.
