Migrant worker bleg (Dubai edition)

Some of you may remember my randomized control trial of factory labor in Ethiopia. It is still chugging away.

One interesting finding so far: almost one in six people in our sample migrate to Dubai or another Middle Eastern country to become domestic workers. One in six!

these are principally women, and principally domestic workers, by the way.

We’re interested in learning more about working conditions and wages — both average levels, distributions, etc. Anyone familiar with studies or reports or data on the matter?
