Firm needs clients to pay
Hassan said the situation has caused difficulties for workers. He said: “Lots of us have expenses to pay and kids to care for. We are hardworking people, and at the end of the day we want to be paid.” He added: “We are fed up of waiting for our company to respect the commitments, they promised to pay us our salaries.” However, the operational manager said: “We usually pay our workers once every two months, but we have problems with some clients who failed to pay us, and this is the reason behind delayed payments. “The company is addressing this issue and will pay them their salaries this evening [ Wednesday]. “We have communicated with the guards to explain the situation with our clients and we have asked them to be patient.” He denied that air conditioning was faulty and said any poor conditions were the fault of workers not taking care of their accommodation. He said: “Previously the accommodation was much better, the quality of the beds, air conditioning, for example, however, these have been damaged by the guards and this is the reason for the conditions.” Police officers at the scene would not comment on the incident.
