In August, more than 60 foreign workers employed for the World Cup preparations were arrested, and many deported, for protesting unfair working conditions and unpaid wages.
From June 12 to July 13, 2014, Brazil hosted the 2014 World Cup, organized by the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA). The rush to be ready for international crowds has placed construction workers under stress and sometimes put them in unsafe situations.
Since June 11, people across Brazil have been staging protests against the government.
