  • Yup, definitely points out our hypocrisies, albeit subconscious... Wonder if they bothered to think about giving those poor workers a bonus for their part in making the large profit.

  • Well spotted. And a great indicator of the absurdity we live in.

  • and the middle class is the victim. some people want/dream to be in the left side, but because of their greedy & unplanned rush, they will be "left" in the right side, and will know -after it's too late- that it wasn't the "right" choice.

    what am I talking about!? :o

    anyway, it's so sad that the rich are depriving the poor of their essential human rights :(

  • I have a feeling they do it deliberately. If you follow their news word for word, reporters do pitch in what they feel. It's there in the first sentence of this article.

    I could be wrong too, maybe she is under the impression that decades of abusing ecological reserves can be undone in the same time the palm was built.

  • good thinking...moreover nobody bothers to even talk to these workers...i mean they r treated like animals...with 400dhs salary per month!!!!!!!....i mean really...they come from their countries to this strange land without family, without proper pay...this is wat i dont like abt dubai, everything is clean and shiny but they r achieving all this by treating HUMANS in such manner...its really such a pity....

    i bet the worker's company's boss's wife must be wearing her underwear worth 400 bucks...sorry for being so rude..but really...people are wasted in dubai

  • Depressing and funny at the same time.

    I wish human rights watch would throw more attention to this. Just a little bit of global pressure and we'd have hundreds of thousands of humans no longer being treated as cattle.

  • It was a great piece of layout planning wasn't it.

    Deliberate, I wonder?

  • actually this is painful... and unfair.. but it points out that the market is at least operating freely.. mind you authorities need to tighten their belts by a few notches!

  • how about Etisalat's 1.337 billion first quarter net profit? :(
