Why we live in bedspaces

date

13-Nov-2016

Dubai: For Marites, along with 23 other women who share a two-bedroom apartment in Al Barsha, the prospect of encountering municipality inspectors referred to as ‘baladiya’ — is just a part of daily life.


The Filipina teaching assistant employd at a school, who is in her fifties, has little choice but to share home space. She pays Dh800 monthly rent — utilities included — for a space on a bunk bed. To avoid the daily clamber up and down the bunk’s cold metal frame, she pays Dh50 extra for the lower berth.


“My salary is not too high. I have to send money to my family also,” says Marites.


At her school, full-time teachers get free housing provided by the school, a privilege not enjoyed by assistants.
