There is a thin line between ignoring safety measures and not giving a damn about people’s lives.
The photo was taken at the Now Lebanon office, located on the 12th floor while some foreign workers were busy cleaning up the windows on a very hot and sunny morning.
The scene was horrifying; their only safety measure was a rope which did not seem [safe] enough to me personally.
Sometimes two questions come to mind about Lebanon:
Why don’t [Lebanese people in desperate need of jobs] clean streets and baby-sit kids and work in construction sites and clean houses?
Add to that: when we give foreign workers such jobs and opportunities [Jobs that we in Lebanon are too classy to do], those workers barely own our respect, and we tend to ignore the slightest necessities: Their safety!
