Kuwait Local Customs: 12 reviews and 11 photos
Foreign workers -- or "third country nationals" -- make up a huge percentage of the population of Kuwait. By some estimates, as many as 1/2 of Kuwait's 3 million people are foreigners. Of these foreigners, many do the jobs that Kuwaitis traditionally find demeaning such as service work (hotel workers, maids, cooks, cleaning people) and construction (masonry, electrical, carpentry, etc). While there are a large number of British and Americans working in the oil industry, the other foreigners are mainly Thai, Indian, Pakistani, and Afghani.
Besides the Kuwait state oil companies (http://www.naukrihub.com/overseas-jobs/gulf/kuwait/oil-gas.html), the following foreign companies have oil interests in Kuwait:
British Petroleum, Chevron, Getty Oil, Gulf Oil, Japan's Arabian Oil Co. (AOC), Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell, Shell International Petroleum, Texaco, and Total.
