I can promise you that none of the companies that you quoted discriminated like AMMROC did.

and oh by the way, before you quote the 40% rule, they can always fire the freeloaders and hire new locals.

I don't see the discrimination. As I said it's all a numbers game. Just like hiring all these people in the first place was a part of the numbers game. Just like letting them go is a numbers game. They have an obligation LEGALLY to the locals. If you don't like that I suggest you work on a different side of the world. They are here to help themselves and their country. Not you. You're just hired help, nothing more. I except this that's why I'm setting myself up.

Why would they waste their time with this when they will just end up with 40% of the same?

I guess you just don't get the term discrimination. As long as you have your job then it doesn't matter. Maybe you should stay there. You fit in nicely.

No I don't see how staying legal and not causing them to be shut down making everyone's job nonexistant is worth the time even bringing up especially when people of all races, colors, religions, and ages were let go. You find it wrong, but you don't have an obligation to the UAE government do you?

Could not have said it better than you have here. He fits in perfectly. For the record I have never worked for AMMROC but have done decades in the Middle East and will continue working there for many years to come. Our dear friend Igunzz is clueless...

First …Wages
People from States and Europe are making double to triple the wage that (Jordanians, Pakistanis & Filipinos) are making, besides it is Tax free .Providing that, what westerns make in 1 year it will take 3 years for other nationalities to make.

Second …Opportunity back home
Finding a job in AMMROC might be a life time shot for them People who came from JOR, PAK PI, etc... Finding a job back home is very difficult as I mentioned before , and if ever they get lucky to find one job then the pay won’t be that much, am talking about less than 500$ a month may be way way less. So they don’t have plan B/C/D, they only plan they have is G/Go home and suffer. Not to mention, their chance to work in other countries worldwide is less than westerns have due to nationality favoritism.

Third…Culture
Most of them people who got laid off they have responsibilities not only towards their kids and wife, not only toward bills (home, car may be loans and debts from here and there) but also towards their parents or may be brothers/sisters (some of you may say this is ridiculous) I say just ask each one of them, I bet that they have commitments towards their extended families due to social strings and cultural life norm. They came to UAE to pay off their debts and live a good life along with their families and siblings.

Fourth…vision
Again, AMMROC broke their promises by laying off majority of unfortunate nationalities, also some unfortunate Americans were there too as collateral damage. Some Jordanians proposed to work other platforms (C130's, CN's, Helicopters)even with less pay, but their proposal was not welcomed by AMMROC (PM me for details), despite the fact that they have experience and training on such platforms. Why the hick they weren't given this chance? At the same time AMMROC is hiring from Morocco and other countries to cover open vacancies left behind after laying off people, I just hope and pray they don’t do the same for the new comers!!!

All in all, There is no way to compare these people from unfortunate background(JOR,PAK,PI,etc..) with fortunate westerns, please guys don’t blame them for getting upset and losing it. They didn't leave their homeland looking for trouble but for a better quality of life.
I wish whoever stays in AMMROC all the best no matter if he/she was from States, Europe, Middle East or Far East. Everybody deserves a good life and should be treated fair by their employer with full respect.
All well said and we feel terrible for all laid off but I just have to say my husband is retired Blackhawks since 06 and has been doing contract work in same hanger since he retired. Due to the cutbacks 55% of his hanger was laid off ( my husband included) to which we cannot figure out how it was done. Not by seniority, not those who had been written up in the past??? If so my husband would still be employed. He is a very dedicated employee who is hard working. He has not been able to find a job since April 12. He has applied for jobs all over the country. The reason I'm posting this is in hopes of appreciating having a job and that pays well. It seems to be the same here in the states. Wishing everyone well and I do appreciate all post posted...
