An alarming photograph of a domestic worker travelling in the open trunk of her employer’s white automobile has been making the rounds on social media websites like twitter and Facebook. 
Waleed Al-Subaie witnessed the incident less than a week ago near the Al-Andalus and Al-Firdous area between 9:00 and 10:00 pm.
Alarmed by what he saw, he quickly uploaded the photo to twitter from his handle @WaleedAlsubaie  with the text, “I request that the Ministry of Interior arrest the owner of this car”.
The image was re-tweeted and shared several times and posted on websites and blogs, garnering many responses condemning the cruelty. Al-Subaie on speaking to the Arab Times shared that although this was the first time he had seen a helper in the trunk of a sedan, it was very common in Kuwait to see domestic workers  shoved uncomfortably in the back of SUVs.
Al-Subaie is unaware of whether anyone has reported the incident to the authorities . Although he hopes that the employer would be reprimanded for his actions, he expressed due cynicism noting that the authorities would be less concerned in dealing with such abuses.
