Bulgaria -Highway construction workers protest over unpaid wages -February 13, 2013

Over a 100 workers involved in the building of two highways staged a protest due to wages of the last 7 months to over a year have not been paid by the project subcontractors. The protesters raised signs stating that the highway had been built on the corpses of workers’ families, who have gone deeper and deeper into depth as they awaited their salaries. The protesters initially tried to resolve the conflict via the ministry that ordered the building of the highway, but to no avail.
