Chinese workers protest over their unpaid wages

KUWAIT: Kuwait police broke up a gathering by Chinese workers in front of Chinese Embassy on Wednesday night. A security source said the gathering was due to lack of payment of their salaries.

The workers demanded airplane tickets to go home, which the company they work for refused. Al-Qabas reported that Manpower Public Authority has promised to pay the salaries from the company deposits.

Meanwhile the workers will be sent to deportation center until procedures are taken to pay them their wages – then actions will be taken against the company. —Al-Qabas
