The words seem so obviously neutral and just technical. In her new book “Does Skill Make US Human?” author Natasha Iskander reveals that the language of skill versus unskilled is being used to justify dehumanizing workers in Qatar, much the same as “merit based” immigration gates are being used in the United States. There as here, migrant rights are intentionally limited. The men who built the dazzling futuristic Qatari infrastructure for the 2022 World Cup are without rights. Forced to live in miserable camps with no access to even public access sites. It’s a creative, scientific way to discriminate against certain groups of people. Coming to a town near you!
