The Heat is On !!

The Heat is On !!
And we know it for sure but from our AC comfort ! The unfortunate desis who will have to sweat it out are the ones really trembling in their staff quarters.

Fortunately from June 15, they would be eligible for the mid-day break between 12.30 – 3.00pm. Companies may have to pay Dhs 15000 as penalty for flouting the rule, but who will complain and how is not clear. Government inspectors may do the rounds, but in this heat it doesn’t look like they will cover much ground. Wish there was a hotline for workers to report on their companies that does not provide them this reprieve from the heat.

Our heart goes out to Desis working in construction, docks, loading-unloading, abras, and other full-time outdoor work. Though we despise the parking inspectors. and though they are not desis, we do feel sad for them too.
