8,000 Workers Strike at KAFD

Saudi Gazette has interviewed some of the 8,000 workers who held a strike at King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD) in Riyadh yesterday.

A number of workers said they did not receive salary for the last three months while some others said they have not been paid for five months.

Speaking to Saudi Gazette, one worker said that their sponsor informed them that he will deduct SR2,400 from their salaries in order to pay the labor office, following the order of the Ministry of Labor to levy an additional fee of SR2,400 per laborer if they exceed the number of Saudi workers.
