"The report, "'I Was Sold': Abuse and Exploitation of Migrant Domestic Workers in Oman," documents how Oman's kafala(sponsorship) immigrant labor system and lack of labor law protections leaves migrant domestic workers exposed to abuse and exploitation by employers, whose consent they need to change jobs. Those who flee abuse--including beatings, sexual abuse, unpaid wages, and excessive working hours--have little avenue for redress and can face legal penalties for "absconding." Families rely on migrant domestic workers to care for their children, cook their meals, and clean their homes. Yet many migrant domestic workers, who rely on their salaries to support their own families and children at home, face cruel and exploitative conditions"--Publisher's description.
