Not fair to blame expatriate for the unemployment rate among Kuwaitis - KTUF Chairman

It was not fair to blame expatriate workers for the unemployment rate among Kuwaitis, Chairman of Kuwait Trade Union Federation (KTUF) Salem Al-Ajmi said. No one denies the efforts and contributions of expatriates along with their Kuwaiti colleagues in ensuring the prosperity and advancement of Kuwait, he added.

According to Al-Ajmi, KTUF, which represents the workforce in Kuwait including Kuwaitis and expatriates, believes the real problem is not just with the appointment of a number of skilled expatriates at the expense of national cadres, but it is with the training of national cadres so that they can take charge and take up work responsibilities. 

The Kuwaitization policy requires collaboration between the government and society, starting with the way families bring up children and direct them towards accepting work that is suitable for their educational and scientific abilities and qualifications, besides studying the labor market and its requirements and directing educational sector towards responding to the labor market needs, he added.

He said the private sector is also required to contribute, not only in employing national workforce but also in training and equipping the national labor through establishment of special institutes adjacent to factories and companies with the task of training them about the requirements of work.
