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.
