Migrant Workers Strike In Dubai

Thousands of migrant building workers are on strike in the world's tallest tower, in Dubai.

The United Arab Emirates is a country that is largely based on migrant labour, with migrant workers constituting three-quarters of the population but having no rights. I'm not even sure that 'country' is the right word - it seems more like a machine for extracting foreign labour located within certain borders.

Anyway, up the workers!
