I spoke to a couple of people recently that both claimed to have worked in Saudi Arabia within the last several years. Why did they do it? They both
said that their salary there was over six times what they were earning now. They did it for the money.
At first, I thought that's simply being a sell-out. I don't see how anyone could support the ubiquitously evil Saudi Arabian society or culture in any
way without selling their soul (all other things being equal).
But, since then I've thought of other rationales for working there:
1. Life Experience
I must admit that while I loath everything about Saudi Arabian society and culture, I'm still morbidly curious about seeing it first hand.
2. Self-Test of Strength
One of the people that claimed to have worked in Saudi Arabia told me that they knew for a fact that literally 99% of the people in their field that
attempted to work in the country left before their first contract was up. Furthermore, the turnover rate would be even higher than 99% because most of
those who actually finished their first contract left ASAP after it was up. These foreign workers just couldn't stand the environment. So, working in
Saudi Arabia could be looked at as an ultimate test of mental and psychological strength.
What's your view of working in Saudi Arabia?
