Well, not all, most.
Maybe not most, some.
OK, a few.

There are going to be conections on that building that only about 10 guys in the world can make. And by the way you couldnt pay me enough to be on that job

Obviously the main technical expertise will be Western - and for that they'll pay top dollar, I'm sure.
But the on-site grafters are the ones I feel sorry for. 10 - 12 hours a day in 45 degrees(115 for the seppos!) for about $10 per day. Poor b'stards.

Who builds a house on unconsolidated materials?
There are morons everywhere.
My personal favorite is a building in town here. The building was finished, about 16 stories, and the elevator shaft was out 5 feet when it was completed. There's an addition on the side of the building to accomodate the elevator shaft. Needless to say, the contractor didn't stay in business very long after that boo-boo....
