Soon to be Tallest building in the world.

The building is now taller than Taipei 101 in Taiwan, which had dominated the world's skyline at 1,667 feet (508 meters) since 2004. (AP Photo/Kamran Jebreili)

  1. General laborers get paid $4.00 U.S. per DAY to work on that building.

    In the U.S. for such a building, workers would be able to score themselves $4.00 per HOUR and that would be AFTER taxes.

    Amazing how the United States is so spit upon but paying $4.00 a day in Dubai is okay.
