Workers at a diamond cutting and polishing factory in the capital of the southern African nation of Namibia are staging a series of on-site demonstrations to convince the company that employs them to grant them pay raises, AllAfrica.com reported cited by Israelidiamond.co.il.
About 70 employees of diamond company Nu Diamonds are participating in the work action at the Windhoek polishing plant. One of the workers, who currently receive between $141 and $235, said that they "are tired of working for nothing". They are demanding salary increases of $294, transport allowances of $82, housing allowances of $106 and lunch allowances of $59.
