The Labor Ministry has closed 43 abaya shops in north and east Riyadh for allegedly failing to abide by the Kingdom’s Saudization regulations that insist appointment of Saudi women as saleswomen and cashiers.
“We have closed the shops as they failed to employ Saudi women as instructed by the law,” said Saud Al-Sanitan, a ministry official, who led inspections of markets to find out defaulters. He said the ministry had earlier given these shops two weeks to correct their status.
