Vol­un­teers cel­e­brate 100 weeks of reach­ing out to labour­ers

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS... -

“This is a great achieve­ment but it misses the point, why aren’t the com­pa­nies who hire the labour­ers un­der UAE law tak­ing care of their peo­ple to be­gin with?”

HADI FA

“Why isn’t the gov­ern­ment look­ing into th­ese com­pa­nies a bit closer? Some don’t pay their labour­ers...don’t pro­vide food or water. How is this even le­gal???? There is no­body pro­tect­ing or de­fend­ing the rights of th­ese men and thats all ok? They de­pend on vol­un­teers to grant their rights? This is a dis­grace.”

LUCIANA TAY­LOR

“If the labour­ers were paid enough they wouldn’t need to have vol­un­teers giv­ing them food as they strug­gle to sur­vive. Min­i­mum wage se­ri­ously needs to be in­stalled in this coun­try. Fair days pay for a fair days work.”
