Difficult life of Pakistani migrant workers in UAE
Migrant workers from Pakistan’s villages arrive in the oil rich country UAE with dreams of making good money to send home. They work tirelessly for a meagre salary which is often not paid on time. These migrant labourers struggle with depression and anxiety and the fear that their passports will be confiscated. They live difficult lives in Dubai and Sharjah where media is not encouraged to report on the ground reality. The labourers are often confined and their new dream is to make it back home to Pakistan to work on the China Pakistan Economic Corridor – which presents new opportunities for businesses and jobs – and for prosperous lives.
