The devastating truth about Qatar’s world cup bid – Part 1 on Qatar 2022

In Qatar, 4000 workers will die to put on the 2022 Football World Cup. This staggering figure indicates the slave-like conditions the builders of football’s most expensive construction project are enduring.

Workers won’t speak out for fear of being fired, but for some, hopelessness outweighs the fear. Qatari labourers building for the 2022 World Cup are forced into long hours on the side of roads or inside factories in the sweltering heat. Their living situations are just as trying: “We have been here for 2 months. And for 2 months we haven’t been given beds.” These workers entered into pseudo slavery due the loans they took to travel that they can’t afford to pay back, as the hope of the income they were promised was a lie. They can’t return home, and if they’re sick “the company cut their salary for going to the hospital”. Take an inside look at the conditions of these impoverished and undervalued workers, who risk overworking to the point of death for fear of unemployment.
