FEATURING JAMES LYNCH – As soccer fans worldwide look forward to the 2022 World Cup game in Qatar, Amnesty International has just released a new report finding horrific levels of worker exploitation. Tens of thousands of workers are building a new stadium for the World Cup in Doha called Khalifa International Stadium.

The workforce is almost entirely of migrant origin, hailing from the South Asian countries of Bangladesh, India, and Nepal.

Amnesty International interviewed hundreds of workers for its report and found widespread abuses and exploitation. The report is entitled The ugly side of the beautiful game: Exploitation on a Qatar 2022 World Cup site.
