Ahmed was appointed to work as a sales executive at a large furniture company in Kuwait. He was hired because the company was in need of Kuwaiti employees. Ahmed tried to go to work but his boss told him that there was no need for him to come — he could just stay at home and get paid from the government as support for Kuwaitis who work in the private sector. Ahmed tried hard to attend his job because it was a whole new experience for him to work, especially because he was still completing his university studies. But he never had the chance to do that properly. “I feel as if I am doing nothing. It is such a fake situation, and I am so bored,” he maintained.
