Vice recently aired an episode on HBO investigating the labor practices of Trump International Golf Club in Dubai - and they are jawdroppingly awful, to say the least.

The laborers are brought in from countries like Pakistan, promised $3 an hour but paid half of that, have their passports confiscated when they arrive in the country so that they can't leave, and packed 20 or more to a room.

All this so that a billionaire, who has more money than he can spend in a lifetime, can fleece workers to "make" even more money.

If you have HBO, you can watch the full episode. If you don't, below are two clips that provide a glimpse into the horror that it is to be a worker building Trump's golf club in Dubai.

Thanks for posting a very revealing and interesting article. Trump is a threat to all Americans but especially working class people who stand to lose greatly under Trump and his gang of cohorts!

Clearly, paying half of what was promised is shameful, but it would be helpful to know what the standard hourly wage for laborers is in Dubai?
