More than 4500 worker at the Al-Nasr Textile Company in Alexandria (Cabo) entered their second consecutive day of striking where they demanded their paychecks. The company had promised to pay the employees and to hand out meal vouchers, however neither promises were kept.

Abdul Rahim Shaker, an employee at the factory, stressed that while the managers and inspectors received large earnings of over 137,000 LE, the company failed to handout paychecks to employees, despite their pay being meager, consisting of only 300LE.

Ali El-Badri, Head of the Egyptian Workers Federation asserted to Ikhwanweb that "the workers will continue the strikes until Eid and if necessary throughout Eid until they receive what is rightfully theirs."

In swift retaliation, the company decided to deduct three working days to punish the strikers for their conduct, however the employees were not deterred and confirmed that they would continue their strike until their demands are met.
