Saudi Lingerie Shops Told To Hire Women Or Lose Work Visas

Shops selling women's fashion and lingerie that continue to employ male staff will be barred from all the ministry of labor services, most important of which is the loss of the privilege of getting work visas to recruit manpower from abroad. The deadline for switching to female staff was set at January of next year.

Reem Assad, a member of the Saudi Economic Society who has been calling for boycotting lingerie shops that do not employ women, said that there should not be any slackness in the implementation of the ministry's directives.

Assad doubted, however, that shopping centers and malls took the ministry's order seriously and recalled that a mall recently asked her to help find 450 jobs for men. In the fact, the ministry of labor first issued the order to hire only women for lingerie shops five years ago.
