More workers die as Qatar’s preparation condemned

Qatar’s preparation as the host of 2022 World Cup has been condemned following the death of dozens of Nepalese migrant construction workers in recent weeks. Apart from that, thousands of workers are also enduring labor abuses, according to the investigation report from The Guardian.

The documents from the Nepalese embassy in Doha also showed that at least 44 workers died from June 4 to August 8. They died of heart attack, heart failure as well as workplace incidents.

Nepalese workers make up the largest group of labourers in Qatar. Some of them said that they are forced to work for long hours in such a hot temperature without having access to water. Ram Kumar Mahara said that he and his friends had to work for 12 hours, or even 24 hours without any food at all. “When I complained, my employer beat and attacked me, then I had to beg for food from others”,he added.

Most workers have to leave for the emirate as they have debt in their hometown. While Qatar is one of the countries with the largest numbers of migrant workers.

Meanwhile the Qatari Labour Ministry ensures that it has stricted rule governing working in heat and will punish companies which don’t comply with the law.

An activist in Nepalses Trade union said that people keep talking about the effect of extreme heat on footballers, but ignore how it also costs workers’s life.
