The driver bubble

31 Jan


I remember a time when the going rate for a driver was SR 1200 a month. Then it was 1500. Now it’s anywhere between 2000 and 3000. That’s not to mention the rise in visa and iqama prices. It has become so complicated and expensive to bring in a driver,  people are just hiring “local” drivers, poaching them from other employers by offering a raise.  Question is: Are we experiencing a driver bubble?  How high will these prices rise? And what will happen when it becomes too high a price for most people ?
