Right to Rest for domestic workers

Sufficient rest is an absolute necessity to all, it not only provides the possibilities for better lives to individuals, but it as well, constructs better societies as a whole. This essential right has been one of the initial motivations behind organizations and civil rights movements. The right to rest has been included in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 24, and the right to rest, has been established in the International Labour Organization, since its first convention in 1919. Nevertheless, many countries do not abide to these laws and conventions, in Kuwait among other Middle Eastern Countries; the domestic workers sector is one of the most vulnerable in assuring that all receive enough time rest.
