how the other half lives in Kuwait...

I titled this photo "Workers’ Beds for the Night, The Avenues, Al-Rai, Kuwait," and entered it into a journal that was to be published here in Kuwait. My title was censored and changed to just "Workers' Beds for the Night." They did not even ask me. I guess I am just shocked that they even published it.... the Avenues is currently the biggest mall in Kuwait (although I've heard they are building a bigger one). It is also one of the newest and richest... these men, workers at the Avenues and mostly all Bangladeshi, were all sleeping directly on the concrete, with only a few sheets of a newspaper as any comfort, in the underground parking around midnight...
