Think you had a rough night?

Try getting some sleep under 1 million watt spot lights, like the workers at this Beirut construction site:
Laying on concrete slabs and rebar, with little more than thin sponge matts in between: 

Tens of thousands of Syrian and Egyptian migrant laborers have been the main engine behind Beirut’s glitzy new developments. Despite the billions of dollars in luxury real estate that they produce, the workers are expected to live on-site without plumbing and in shoddily constructed cinder block shacks. 
But those conditions are so intolerable that many prefer to sleep outside, even under the blinding security lights that stay on all night.
