Abstract

More than a million Indians work in UAE, and a third of them lives in worker camps. It is the expectation of higher wages that makes the ‘grass greener’ in UAE. But the wage differential, if it exists, does not seem to compensate for the living conditions in these camps. The article discusses the evidence from field study of living conditions in the worker-camps in UAE.
