Quality of work more important than life!

A construction site motto...

Not in Dubai, thankfully, but in Beijing, China, where workers are urged to sacrifice their lives to produce good and timely work for the 2008 Olympics.

Why not just pay them more? Why not just pay them at all? BBC, in a TV report this week entitled Inside China, reports that migrant Chinese workers at some Beijing construction sites are not paid until the project is complete.

So, Dubai's isn't the world's hardest slave market for migrant laborers. A silver lining?

More on China's workers' plight which offers food for thought regarding Dubai's issues.
