Abolish the kafala system and include migrant domestic workers in the Lebanese labor law
Lebanon is still under the influence of the Covid-19 pandemic and the economic crisis, both of which have raised the pressures experienced by the country’s population and put many people under the poverty line.
The Lebanese were not solely affected by this crisis, but migrant workers of various nationalities were affected as well.
Before the current crisis, Lebanon was a rich destination for domestic workers. However, that is no longer the case. The economic crisis affected the maintenance of Lebanon as a destination for these workers, while inhumane and unfair practices in some cases were still part of the plight of domestic workers.
