Russia Sochi Migrants
In this photo taken on Monday, Feb. 4, 2013, hotels are under construction in Krasnaya Polyana, mountain Olympic cluster, 60 kilometers East from Sochi, Russia. One year from now Russia will be hosting the Winter Olympics at the Black Sea resort of Sochi, and these Games are being built with the hands of thousands migrant workers who are doing all the grunt work that Russians find too low-paid and physically demanding. In a hope to escape their impoverished countries and provide for their families, Central Asian migrants flock to Russia to live in crowded quarters and work long hours. (AP Photo/Dmitry Lovetsky)
