Qatar's Fifa World Cup 2022 construction workers go on strike
A video has circulated online showing migrant workers taking part in a strike over conditions and wages
Reports have emerged of an online video being posted across social platforms showing workers, who are developing stadiums for the Fifa World Cup 2022 in Qatar, protesting. According to The National, the strike is reportedly over work conditions and wages, with workers allegedly receiving $1.04 (AED 3.82) an hour.
The figures were revealed by UK newspaper The Daily Mirror as part of an investigation in May 2019 and said that 28,000 people were employed to build seven stadiums for the 2022 Fifa World Cup in Qatar.
The strike is reportedly part of a series of protests from migrant workers in 2019. In April, workers took to the streets for overdue wages, government policies and inhuman working conditions.
