Very good step by Ministry of Social Affairs & Labor. Hope MSA & L would take strict actions against the companies not paying salary and benefits of resigned employees waiting to go on exit. Many workers are waiting for more than 10 months without any income.

Now since these labourers are gone they have replaced the locals and then actually behind the scene the burden of 4 people work is on that one expat workers who is helpless to speak of course with no increment and no overtime ...
