I live in Dubai and the average salary for laborers here are 500 - 800 USD. I used to live in Lebanon and was working for a Big 4 audit firm that paid the same. Please don’t judge the country when you haven’t lived here. Domestic workers and drivers and construction workers send money back home so there families can live and in some cases, even thrive. If you asked these men if they wanted higher pay or better working hours, 9 our of 10 will take the higher pay. I’m not saying it’s an ideal situation to see them working away in the heat as I pass by my air conditioned car, but they put food on the table and educate their kids. Lastly, the link about the ‘hundreds’ of deaths is a story from Qatar which is ANOTHER country.
