Brazilian Court Partially Halts Work On World Cup Stadium After Death
Published December 17, 2013
WORKER SHORTAGE: BLOOMBERG's Tariq Panja reported a company building one of the 12 World Cup stadiums "is recruiting Haitian workers after falling months behind schedule." State of Mato Grosso World Cup Special Secretary Mauricio Guimaraes said that construction firm Mendes Junior "has brought in more than 100 workers from the Caribbean country to help complete the Arena Pantanal in Cuiaba." Even with the additional assistance, the stadium, where seats have yet to be installed and work on the roof remains unfinished, "will miss a Dec. 31 deadline by at least two months." Mendes Junior "provides lodging for most of the workers." Haitians "are also helping build stadiums in the southern city of Curitiba and in the Amazon capital, Manaus" (BLOOMBERG, 12/16).
