Steady jobs

If there's one job catagory that's safe in the current climate it must be the guys in Dubai who fight the sand.

In Dubai Marina there's a gang of sweepers, each with nothing more than a simple domestic broom, tryingto keep the footpaths clear of the sand that settles non-stop on them.

On the beach at Umm Suqeim, which is relentlessly washed away by the new currents caused by the offshore developments, there's a more heavily equipped gang fighting the sand - but here they're trying to keep it in place.

Good steady work I would have thought.
