Building a Life
Here is a photo of some of the building work on Palm Island. Most construction work in Dubai goes on 24 hours a day. The majority of the construction workers come from the Indian subcontinent. They are bussed in everyday from settlements on the outskirts of Dubai. By Western standards, they don't earn very much, but it's more than they would get if they had jobs in their homeland.
