It is not new to hear that Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) in Saudi Arabia are experiencing difficulties with their work as there are some companies who are refusing to pay their employees.
This problem could be due to the oil crisis in the country which is still going on until today. There are companies that just chose to close down while others remain on business without paying the proper wage of their workers.
This isn’t right. These workers also have their families back home who are depending on the monthly allotment they send. The worsening situation of these unpaid workers led to a commotion in a worker’s accommodation in Saudi Arabia.
In the video which was posted by a certain Facebook user, Gin Neb Rah, a woman can be seen arguing and shouting out of anger because they were not given salary by their company.
SAMAMA COMPANY allegedly failed to pay the salaries of their workers. If other get their salary, it was very late. Aside from that, their Iqama was not renewed and they are also not allowed to exit.
Due to the growing problems, its workers decided to protest and have a strike so they can get what they worked for.
Also in the video, a man can be seen conversing to the woman who was really mad. However, their conversations turned out sour and other workers of the said company started to attack the Arab man.
Filipino workers of this company are also eagerly asking for help so their company will address their, please.
