Tabtabaei urges 1-month salary grant to expats
KUWAIT: Islamist MP Waleed Al-Tabtabaei yesterday urged private Kuwaiti companies to distribute a month's salary as a grant to their non-Kuwaiti employees on the occasion of national events. Tabtabaei said in a statement that the Amir has ordered the distribution of KD 1,000 to each Kuwaiti citizen on the occasions of the 50th anniversary of the independence, 20th anniversary of the liberation and the fifth anniversary of his ascendance to power. He said that owners of Kuwaiti companies should take the Amir's decision as an example and distribute a grant to expatriates.

Unfortunately, it isn't in the budget of most comanies in Kuwait to do that, but hey, nice thought.
