Is this true ? Asian workers are cheaper then Iraq workers ?

I found this in a interview with Molly Irvins on Alternet :

MI: The technical term for that is goldplating. One irony is that there are already enormous complaints from Iraqis themselves, saying, 'We could have fixed this place up for much cheaper; why didn't you ask us?' We're also importing workers from Southeast Asia because they are cheaper labor than the Iraqis.

Did any of you found more info on this ? It is realy painfull for the Iraqis if it is true.

- To see the labor go to foriengers and stay unemploid in a poor country.
- To see the big American companies making the profits on the ( money of loans ) rebuilding and stay unemploid in a poor country.

The interview :
