Romania -Life guards protest against delayed pay -July 08, 2013

Some 400 life guards in Constanta county have started a work-in strike, while continuing to offer their lifesaving services to swimmers in distress. The life guards, most of whom are young workers, have not been paid for two months. According to local media, the Constanta county has already earmarked the funds to pay the life guards and other medical personnel on the beaches, but is awaiting government approval of the transfer of funds. The life guards’ wages amount to about 1,500 RON per month, the equivalent of €340.
