Kuwait: Around 200 laborers, 100 of them Filipinos, stopped work to protest nonpayment of salary. The laborers were employed by a local construction company subcontracted to various government projects in Kuwait. The workers have not been paid for three months. “We are not receiving our salary for months so we are hungry, we need food to eat,” said Dindo, one of about 100 Pinoy workers who are on-strike to protest for nonpayment of salary. During the past few weeks, the workers say they survived with the help of friends and most of the time they roam around Khaitan and Farwaniya looking for fresh chicken shops to ask for free chicken feet. “We ask shops to give the chicken feet so we can survive and have something to eat,” said Marvin, 49, who is a foreman at the company. “It’s really hard to live like this. But we have to survive; we just cook it in various ways, but all same, chicken feet. We also beg some Filipinos outside to give us some food. Thank God they understand us, there are Filipino groups helping, but we are not eating every day, they are giving us food but not enough,” said Marvin.
