Pakistani migrant workers in UAE dream returning home for decent job
Migrant workers toil in the sweltering heat; they do not get their wages on time and they live in dismal conditions. Their labour is exploited as they work for 10 to 12 hours a day instead of the prescribed 8 hours. The workers don’t get clean water for drinking. This is happening in Dubai, Sharjah and Ajman. They now aspire to get a decent job back home. Few migrant workers are happy in the UAE where they now understand the value of home. For the sake of the welfare of their families, they struggle to cope despite the hardships. They believe the China Pakistan Economic Corridor will present new opportunities for work so they can lead better lives.
