Haitian building of World Cup stadium in Brazil
The conditions for the Haitian laborers, busy building the stadiums for the World Cup in Brazil, have been described as 'slave-like'. Almost as alarming is the news that many of these workers are educated people who, oftentimes, have degrees. They then seek this type of labor because their new countries don't recognize their college degrees. As reported, 15 Haitians complain about bad conditions, the safety risk and low pay they face each week as they help to build the more than 12 stadiums sanctioned for the games.
