Thousands of workers in Dubai went on strike on Monday, demanding better wages from their employer, reports The National. More than 2,000 workers from Al Habtoor Engineering stopped work in Deira and briefly halted traffic in the area, before police took charge of the situation. Workers from the company also held protests in Jebel Ali.
“All the overtime that we were allowed to do has stopped and our salaries are not enough for us to survive. We are demanding for a raise in the salary,” Abdul Rahman, one of the workers at the site told the paper. However company officials said that the problem has been resolved.
