Pakistan: Top Posts For Chinese Staff, Wage Disparity Trigger Workers' Protests
Labourers in Pakistan's Karachi staged a protest on November 19 due to the wage disparity and favouritism towards Chinese staff. Reportedly, for a Metro Line project, Pakistani workers are getting very meagre salaries compared to their Chinese counterpart. Not just wages, even top positions are acquired by Chinese nationals only. Moreover, Pakistani workers get their wages in 'Pakistani Rupees' and the Chinese staff get paid in 'Yuan'.
