Civil society split over Nahhas’ view on migrant domestic labor


BEIRUT

Civil society groups were divided Thursday in reaction to Labor Minister Charbel Nahhas’ voiced opposition to the draft law covering the rights of migrant domestic workers.

Speaking at a roundtable discussion on the empowerment of migrant domestic workers at La Sagesse university Monday, Nahhas told attendees that he rejected a separate labor law for migrant domestic workers. He reiterated his position on Twitter Wednesday.

“Any labor law that takes into account the nationality of the worker is tantamount to racial discrimination,” he wrote.
