Saudi women-only stores shutting down due to worker shortages

: Monday, February 10 - 2014 @ 09:18

The closure of several small, women-only stores, due to a shortage of qualified women workers, has prompted store owners to ask the labour ministry to reconsider and review its ban on male workers in such stores, Saudi Gazette has reported. They also asked the ministry for financial and training support so women workers can be properly trained to work in retail stores. The head of the Textiles Committee at the Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI) said there have been some failures in implementing the ministry’s employment strategy. “These failures are due to routine regulations and should be dealt with before applying new regulations. Many small store owners have closed down their businesses and become job seekers instead of business owners. This needs to change,” he said.
