DUBAI TOWER - WORLD TALLEST 1,680 FEET



DUBAI (AFP) - Burj Dubai, a tower rising in the booming Gulf emirate, has become the tallest building in the world at 512.1 metres (1,680 feet), surpassing Taiwan's Taipei 101 which is 508 metres (1,667 feet) tall, developers Emaar said Saturday.

Burj Dubai, or Dubai Tower, now has 141 storeys, more than any other building in the world, Emaar Properties said in a statement.

The skyscraper, scheduled for completion in 2008, is one of a string of grandiose projects taking shape in Dubai, which is part of the United Arab Emirates.

General laborers get paid $4.00 U.S. per DAY to work on that building.

In the U.S. for such a building, workers would be able to score themselves $4.00 per HOUR and that would be AFTER taxes.

Amazing how the United States is so spit upon but paying $4.00 a day in Dubai is okay.
