Saudi Arabia eyes recruiting Alberta nurses

A recruiting company hopes to exploit the province’s hard line on public sector workers by targeting Alberta nurses for work in the Saudi Arabia, the CBC reports. A billboard towering over traffic on 118th Avenue lists incentives for the overseas positions, highlighting tax-free income, seven weeks of vacation and free housing.

As an aside, I took a call today from a gentleman who said he grew up in Saudi Arabia and wanted me to urge UNA members NOT to consider moving there on the grounds that the cultural differences are too big and the society too dangerous for westerners.
