More than 300 workers of a construction firm downed tools yesterday in a row over unpaid wages.
The labourers gathered at the Bahrain Motors Company’s headquarters in Hafeera demanding pending wages.
Police arrived at the scene and tried to control the crowd.
“There are Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi workers who have not received their salaries for four months now,” said a worker who only identified himself as Alam.
“We have no money and it’s difficult to survive.”
Company officials could not be reached for comment yesterday.
