If you read through past threads on this forum, the local press (The National & Gulf news) and International papers you will see that the UAE is not immune from global problems.

best bet is to google recruiting agencies here in Dubai and ask them. We could tell you yes or no and we would be giving the wrong info. Go to the source. Good luck

I would say it is. But again thats just my opinion. I dont think it really ever got bad here like it did in other parts of the world.

If they pay for your living costs and that is your salary, then you could 'live' off of it. Maybe you will work your way up in the company, and make more over time. Everyone has to start out somewhere!

Also depends on what you could earn at home. You can lively cheaply anywhere all depends on the expectations. As with a few on here not everyone needs a maid and eat out 3 times a week!
