Labor protests continue in Cairo and other governorates

Labor protests, primarily centered on demands for better wages, were staged again in Cairo and other governorates on Wednesday.

Accusing the minister of ignoring their financial demands, 1000 employees of the Ministry of Housing continued protests in Cairo for the third day in a row.

Hundreds of temporary workers of the Suez Canal Authority staged protests demanding permanent contracts. They have been working on a temporary basis for more than 20 years.

Some 500 employees of public service outlets in Cairo also demanded better wages, while workers of the Natural Gas Company in Beheira went on hunger strike, demanding medical care, housing benefits, and higher bonuses.

Similar protests were staged in the governorates of New Valley, South Sinai and Damietta.
