Qatar Today - - BUSINESS > REALTY CHECK -

Be­tween 200 and 300 men protested un­paid wages by stop­ping all work at the pres­ti­gious Msheireb Down­town Doha project, ac­cord­ing to an on­line news site. While most de­scribed the in­ci­dent as a peace­ful protest, oth­ers said some in­di­vid­u­als ag­gres­sively con­fronted their su­per­vi­sors. The em­ployer, sub­con­trac­tor Drake & Scull, was quoted as say­ing that the is­sue stemmed from a one­time de­lay in pay­ing salaries be­cause of new re­quire­ments un­der Qatar's wage

pro­tec­tion sys­tem.
