Ramadan is also the name of the month in the islamic calendar.... i'm from Saudi i think i know my calendar.
people work and go to school during ramadan so its not considered a holiday.. the 4 days after Ramadan is an Eid=Holiday.

The government force them to stop working at the day time because its summer here for sure so the temperature nowdays in jeddah goes between 28-38 and in some places in the gcc it can reach 45 like riyadh dubai and doha but jedda is way cooler for somehow and during ramadan we are fasting so no one can work under the sun during the day time because believe its illegal or they have to pay big fine meanwhile in dubai or doha this law doesn't exist!! And theres a documentary on YouTube its called dubai slaves check it guys

Are you sure about that law ?! Because do you remember 3 weeks a go when the hashtag qatar was trending in Twitter and the reason was because of the government of qatar invited a film makers from bbc to make a documentary about life and qatar and they chhoose to film the poor people over there since its the richest country worldwide but what happened that they got arrest because it was talking about these workers right, maybe in dubai this law is recent but im kida of pretty sure that doesn't exist in Qatar till this moment because i just googled as well

My own observations on the tower.
Also over the past 16 days I have been compiling an accurately to-scale diagrammatical representation of the tower to produce this mostly reliable height statistic, which I display in my signature for convenience.

As for the diagram...

I am also rather pessimistic about the progress, looking to what we've seen the past weeks/months.
