Hahaha. In an ideal world, yes, you would love to see the back of us (Multi-National workforce), but you know as well as I do that that will not happen.
After numerous attempts at "Emiratisation" I think the powers that be also know that to be true.
Simple fact: You and your brothers are not up to it!
You have been pampered all of your lives and you have no work ethic.
Unlike Oman or Bahrain, where locals will do "ordinary" jobs, Emiratis would rather go for a waxing than put in a day's work.
Look at any coffee shop during the day.....a sea of neatly ironed dish dashes!!
We have all heard the stories about locals being hired and then never seen again (so that companies can fulfill their quota of locals). Suits everybody I guess. I think Yousef Islam even pointed this out a few years ago.... to some annoyance!
Even in these desperate times for Dubai....the skilled worker will be sacrificed above the local free-loader to avoid local discontent with it's rulers.
So in reality - You are stuck with us old chap
