Welcome to Dubai, a city on the rise with a glittering skyline, world class shopping malls and luxury resorts. In fact, Dubai may be the world�s biggest boomtown. But as ABC News Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross reports, human rights groups say that Dubai's gleaming towers are being built on the backs of exploited foreign workers. In an exclusive �20/20� report, Ross went inside Dubai to learn how the emirate has grown so far so fast � Dubai's building boom has been made possible by some 500,000 migrant construction workers, most from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Many work 12 hours a day, six days a week, in extremely hot temperatures that have led to illness and, in some cases, death. The workers live in crowded camps, with eight or more men sharing one small room. Just days after ABC News began asking questions, the government of the U.A.E. announced a series of reforms to improve the conditions of workers. Ross� exclusive report airs on �20/20,� FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
And: When you are getting dressed in the privacy of your own bedroom, rinsing off after a day at the beach, stopping by your office bathroom, or even in the presence of a police officer, you don�t expect anyone to be watching � or taping you. But in today�s digital age of tiny hidden cameras, you can never be too sure. Chris Cuomo reports on video voyeurism.
Also: Is the public ready to make a bestseller out of a man many still believe may be a murderer? Jim Avila reports on OJ Simpson�s upcoming book.
Plus: The Heart Attack Grill is a small restaurant in Tempe Arizona with the motto �Taste�worth dying for� because they serve fatty food like big hamburgers and Flatliner fries -- French fries boiled in lard. But their artery-clogging food is not what led to trouble from the state attorney general�s office; rather it�s the fact that the owner, who calls himself �Dr. Jon� and works in a doctor�s coat, calls his waitresses �nurses� and dresses them in nurses� uniforms. Are they violating a state law that says only a person who holds a valid license to practice nursing may use the title �nurse�? John Stossel says �Give Me a Break.�
�20/20� is anchored by Elizabeth Vargas and John Stossel. David Sloan is executive producer.
