Unpaid workers in Dubai refuse to leave

Workers who say employer abandoned them say they will stay until they get paid what they are owed.

    A group of foreign workers in the United Arab Emirates has set up camp in the desert, refusing to leave until they are paid what they say they are owed by employers who have deserted them.

    One charity says there has been an increase in cases like this, but the government has yet to weigh in.

    The case has been before the courts for months, but many workers live in dire conditions as they wait for payment.
