World Cup 2022: Qatar still failing to protect workers' rights, says Amnesty Int

Workers helping to get Qatar ready for the 2022 World Cup continue to be mistreated despite promises to improve rights, Amnesty International says.
A new report from the human rights group says thousands of workers are going unpaid.
It adds that a new commission set up to help improve workers' rights is failing to protect them.
Amnesty has urged Qatari authorities to "end the shameful reality of labour exploitation".
"Despite the significant promises of reform which Qatar has made ahead of the 2022 World Cup, it remains a playground for unscrupulous employers," said Stephen Cockburn, Amnesty International's deputy director of global issues.
"Migrant workers often go to Qatar in the hope of giving their families a better life - instead many people return home penniless after spending months chasing their wages, with too little help from the systems that are supposed to protect them.".World Cup, Workers Rights, Still Failing, Says Amnesty, Workers, Rights, Qatar
