Recycling workers

UAE Minister of Labour Ali Abdulla Al Kaabi is defending the concept of a three-plus-three residency cap for unskilled foreign workers in the GCC.

ArabianBusiness.com reports
"The three-plus-three cap is only meant for unskilled workers. We want to make sure that we recycle labour, in and out. For example, we want to give as many people as possible a chance to come in and work in the country and not restrict it to the same workforce year-in, year out."
...
The workers would leave the UAE with experience which will benefit them in their home country as well, he added.

"In any case we're still in the process of fine-tuning the length of the cap and we also want to get a GCC-wide approval to enable workers to travel within the region."
Other benefits of the policy: Undercutting unskilled-worker activism; meeting world standards to extend rights to immigrants based on length-of-stay.

He is an intelligent man, perhaps he should be more honest, than beat around the bush, with such callous talk?

Often, I wonder, if they truly know who make up this nation - including the people who truly feel for this nation? It is quite sad, really.
