A New People Group: Indentured Construction Workers

A new people group has emerged in the wake of the world financial crisis.  In the Middle East — the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and other oil-rich nations — immigrant construction workers have been stranded by the cancellation of commercial construction projects.  These workers have been deprived of their passports, their wages, and the opportunity to return home.  This video presents their plight and calls on architects around the world to leave an ethical footprint on their job sites.  Shouldn’t the Church also respond with some way to help?  Watch this short 3-minute video, and you decide.
