Musings on doha: there is quite a sizeable population of what is colloquially known as migrant workers (Indians, Pilipino & other south east Asians) here, its quite sad really a lot of them are paid pretty poorly for the work they do, they are building the nation from ground up, even what I would call ‘professionals’ IT, Engineering, etc are paid massively lower salaries than their western counterparts, ive never experienced this disparity before, what my experience in the past has been is you are paid to do a job, independent of the nationality you are, your job is in a pay grade you get paid in that pay grade irrespective of where your from. Not here if your SEasian you generally get paid half to a quarter of western counterparts.
