Some insight into Kuwait...

Gives some good insight into some of the issues specific to Kuwait, one of my former students is in this video, and also some street scenes were filmed right down the street from my apartment!  Check it out!!!
Flights at Kuwait's national airline were grounded last week after workers went on strike calling for better pay and working conditions.
That was despite the government raising public-sector wages by 25% the week before - a move that union leaders said was not generous enough.
It is estimated that around 85% of Kuwait's oil revenues are now spent on salaries.
But is raising wages really sustainable in the long-run?
