A Memorial For The Workers Of The Qatar World Cup That Will Reach A Mile High

There’s no two ways about it. The 2022 Qatar World Cup is a disaster. The topic is one that we’ve payed close attention to here at The18, especially the human working conditions, which are pretty much akin to modern day slavery.
