Kuwait’s Budget

So Kuwait’s Parliament voted to approve the Government’s budget. A budget that had no plan of action attached to it. Within said budget KWD6 billion was allocated to salaries!!! That is the equivalent to USD 20.88 billion. This is for a population of barely one million locals. I find that beyond ridiculous.

Also it seems that the council of ministers is going to amend the employment law to add an unemployment clause. In this clause they will give all laid-off Kuwaitis KWD500 per month for a year, plus their social allowance. This sounds tempting enough to get my self laid off and travel the world for a year. I might just do that.
