Salaried Employment: A consequence of Urbanization in Kuwait

Auther : Abdul-Rasoul AL-Moosa

Salaried employment is one of the significant developments of the process of social and economic change that accompanied the oil revolution and subsequent exploitation of the oil revenues. The economic boom quickened the pace of urbanization, resulting in the establishment of institutions that were non-existent in the pre-oil era.

Salaried employment, with all its implications, created the urban man and gave rise to new norms of social consciousness that directly affect interpersonal relations for the fulfillment of individual aspirations. The result is weakening, or even abolition, of traditional occupations that forged strong ties of dependency between the individual and the family, securing his past, present and future. Salaried employment, with an overpowering material orientation, threatens the traditional vocational security of the individual, giving rise to new forms of social relations in the Kuwaiti society.

The purpose of the present study is to explore, identify and understand the whole range and depth of the changes occurring in the wake of the salaried employment, which in the urban literature are regarded as ‘urban problems’.
