Excerpt from Policy Paper

“Contractors from the United Arab Emirates travel to surrounding countries and find working age men to move to Dubai with a fee of $2000 that they are told will be paid off within six months of work. When they arrive, they are stripped of their passports and work around 20 hours each day with much less pay than expected. The pay is so low that they are systematically forced to stay due the expensive process of going back to their homes.”
