Slaves for Soccer

Qatar is hosting the 2022 World Cup, and a Guardian investigation reveals the horrific treatment of the Nepalese workers building the stadiums and infrastructure. It’s a nightmare: In debt to recruitment firms who got them the jobs, they are working without pay in deplorable conditions. They’re also dying; 44 workers died in three months from heart attacks, heart failure, and workplace accidents. (“There is no longer a risk that the World Cup might be built on forced labour. It is already happening.”)
