defence spending has also exceeded ours.
That aside - health and safety does have a place.
Had this story as it broke a while back. Immigrant workers are treated as disposable by the ruling class of the Emirate-countries. Objections by them mean instant sacking, loss of right to work and a trip home (to very little) that they probably can't pay for.
See also: blood bricks, and child agri-labourers in India for the same bullshit mentaility.
Ain't capitalism great, let's spread it to the whole world.
I met a few Indians who worked in the UAE as migrants workforce.. They said it was shit, dangerous and very hard work but given the earning options they had in India compared to a year working in Saudi they lapped it up and made more cash than they had ever seen... and believe me they weren't getting a lot.
The Arabs who run these sites need to be made responsible for the deaths and face manslaughter charges for every one but they've all the money and they make their own rules in their own country so what can you do when there's people from such poverty willing to take the risk?????????
agree FLYER but they should be made internationl responsible for their irresponsible behaviour and this carnage ,as you say.
our government would love to intervene. It's not like they have been perpetuaing the lie that the workforce rely upon the freedoms of the business owners (with minimal regualtion) for the economic success of all......
