Saudi and foreign workers unite to strike over unpaid wages

Staff at a...private hospital in Saudi Arabia entered the fourth day of an open-ended strike on Wednesday in protest over wages not being paid for almost four months...the hospital strike is even more notable as both Saudi and foreign employees have worked together to protest the unpaid salaries...Security was called in to pull down posters put up by staff detailing the pressures of not being paid, including debt, having no car, and an inability to send children to school. Staff alleged corruption, rather than cash flow, is the problem. No one from the Saad Group responded to requests for comment on why the hospital is not paying their staff.
