Practically all Uzbeks that come to Russia for work live in flats with 20-30 roommates or in dirty dormitories, in basements and in abandoned buildings. Most of them earn less then 7,000 rubles (250 dollars), don’t see their families and friends for years. But still this life is better then the life in poverty in their native land. There are some pictures of the beauty that Uzbek workers have to change for peanuts.

However the majority of the Uzbek people have salary of 2,000-7,000 Uzbek sums (2,5-9 dollars).
