Saudi Arabia will not allow anybody to violate its labor and residency regulations and take toughest punitive measures against violators, Labor Minister Adel Fakeih said yesterday.
"The Kingdom will not allow anybody to continue violating its regulations because it harms public interests. If the laws are not followed, the interior and labor ministries will take maximum measures by law against the violators," he told reporters.
He said the Labor Ministry is also studying the obstacles facing Saudi graduates to get jobs and measures to solve it. The ministry will hold a dialogue with businesses during the next six weeks to discuss various issues, including fixing of a minimum salary for Saudis.
He said his visits to the regions were aimed at explaining to regional governors the ministry's Saudization initiatives. "We want a joint move by academics, educational and training institutions, government departments and businesses to address the unemployment challenge," he added.
