Facebook Post Explains Why Dubai People Can’t Even Save a Single Dirham
No matter how many financial seminars you have attended, you can’t still earn even a single dirham in Dubai because, ugh, for obvious reasons.
They say, Dubai is a hub for rich people. Rich people come here to spend money. But the amount of average people is much more than the ‘rich ones.’
As it’s called a hub for rich people, it’s also a refuge for foreign workers.
In a Facebook post made yesterday by user Wyron Cueto, he explained in a sheet a of paper the truth about living in Dubai and how it’s difficult to save for the future.
Cueto stressed that earning a Dh3,000 salary every month isn’t enough.
Below is the bizarre computation:
Dh3,000 - Salary
700 - House rent
200 - Water and electricity
300 - Transportation
1,000 - Remittance
500 - Food allowance
100 - Mobile allowance
100 - Personal hygiene
100 - Budget for our partner's monthsary
In Cueto’s caption, he urged Dubai residents to stop pretending that they still earn money if they really don’t.
A networker, he further added that it isn’t a bad idea to be ‘open minded’ and try a job with ‘extra income.’
In Dubai alone, there are some expats earning as low as Dh1,500 a month.
