All this talk about air pollution, you'd think this forum would be about environment preservation and not skyscrapers.

Wow, that article really puts a perspective on how little these guys make compared to the same type of worker in the U.S. It took that guy roughly 12 weeks, wait no that's 12 months, of wages to buy his camera in the mid 80's. Wow that just seems like it would be 1 of the most dangerous and "should be" highest paid positions. Just Incredible, no wonder these guys, (well China) can put up these massive structures for so damn cheap. $5 USdollars a month in the 80's Is that Correct? Just Crazy.
