Things are quite bleak in the Middle East, I have been told that everyday there are 1000's of cars left at the airport in Dubai, people leaving due to jobs being lost, contracts being cancelled. We were one of the unfortunate families who had to leave Qatar, my husband's contract was terminated midway. We have relocated to the U.K., and he is in the process of moving back out to work. Things are no longer rosy there. We still have friends in Qatar and Dubai, who pass on horror stories everyday. Apparently people are being hired for a job, and when the job is done, say, within 3-6 months, they say thanks and let you go.

Because I didn't want to put any body's web site link on a public forum without taking their permission.
