    Surely this must now stop Qatar from holding the World Cup..


    1 Not allowed!
    "Migrant workers who built luxury offices used by Qatar's 2022 football World Cup organisers have told the Guardian they have not been paid for more than a year and are now working illegally from cockroach-infested lodgings."

    "The migrants are squeezed seven to a room, sleeping on thin, dirty mattresses on the floor and on bunk beds, in breach of Qatar's own labour standards. They live in constant fear of imprisonment because they have been left without paperwork after the contractor on the project, Lee Trading and Contracting, collapsed. They say they are now being exploited on wages as low as 50p an hour."

    "I earned no money," said a 35-year-old Nepalese worker and father-of-three who said he had lost a year's salary on the project. "If I had money to buy a ticket I would go home.""

    Outrage!
