Updated:BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Next week Governor Deval Patrick is leaving for a trade mission to Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
His trip comes on the heels of a report this week about abuses of workers building the NYU campus in Abu Dhabi. The New York Times report says workers were beaten, kept in squalid conditions, and denied fair wages.
Patrick is expected to visit Abu Dhabi as part of his trade mission.
The trade mission, Patrick's third in six months, is expected to cost $175, 000.
