An Investigation by the Guardian criticized the expatriate labor conditions in World Cup 2022 stadiums in Qatar, revealing that workers coming from some of the poorest countries in the world are getting paid very little money for their work in the construction of World Cup enterprises.

The British newspaper said workers working in Al Rayyan stadium in Qatar were still suffering from exploitation, with salaries not exceeding $200 a month.

Al Rayyan Stadium is one of seven huge stadiums to be built around Doha, as well as the Khalifa International Stadium, which was completed last year, with a total construction cost of between $8 billion and $10 billion, according to official estimates.  

"It's hard to get away from the family for a long time, "one of the workers told the Guardian reporter. "Sometimes you need your family to be with you, but you may not have the money to do so. We were supposed to earn something big - but we get very little," said the worker, who spoke under conditions of anonymity.
