As someone who lived in Abu Dhabi for 3 years as the CEO of a hospital, this story is typical of what has gone on in Abu Dhabi for a long time. For instance, construction workers, by and large, are not covered by their health insurance for accidents and there are no OSHA type regulations. The immigrant workers’ living conditions are despicable. While we complain about Abu Dhabi in the news media in this country, the problem can only be resolved if the government takes the initiative to conduct reform. Otherwise this noise will fall on deaf ears and the Abu Dhabi government will continue to deny that the problem exists.
