Whatever growth has happened in Dubai, it's thanks to migrant workers, many of whom have died building those edifices and other infrastructure projects! The rulers and most of the locals are there just to enjoy the fruits of other's hardwork.

more like the migrant workers enjoy the money the state is offering ... everyone can be replaced . if someone doesn't like it , will leave it . well you have no clue about it anyways.

More like migrants workers have to work for the money, which even then is witheld or less than what they were promised. Promotions and salary increases are only offered to locals and at many times, Westerners get better treatment compared to someone from Asia.

You got that right, if they don't like it they can leave, oh wait a minute, those who have their passports witheld ( common practise so by employers ) cannot. And besides, they have no choice but to stay in the country, otherwise they'd be in breach of contract.

I have more than just a clue, my friend.. How? Because I lived there and still keep in touch with things.. unlike some people who chose to ignore the truth.
