Crazy looking building for sure but there have been issues with them and labor for years. I think i heard the avg worker earns around $200 a month. thats was a few years ago though. May be better now. But when they are making as much money on these developments as they are you would think they would pay them more. It's no wonder they are building what they can with labor being so cheap.

$200 is probably pretty good, the country where I grew up the average salary was under $400 a year.

That project along with Dubai in general is also having financial problems. Somebody else outspent his wallet.

Yeap, there are more shut down projects then ongoing over there right now. If I get the time, I'll post a list of them.

Average daily wage over there is $190 a month. If you are killed in an accident, your family gets 10 months pay free. Wow! Where do I sign up?

Oh, and if you get in a car accident over there, look at their stats. EVERY single accident is caused by someone from outside the country. Not a single local.
