Kuwaiti oil workers protest at alleged pay cuts and plans to privatise parts of the oil sector

Photos: Oil workers on strike in Kuwait
Kuwaiti oil workers arrive at the union headquarter in Al-Ahmadi, 35 km south of Kuwait city, on April 17, 2016, to protest alleged pay cuts and plans to privatise parts of the oil sector. Hit by the sharp drop in crude prices on world markets, Kuwait is introducing a new payroll scheme for all public employees and wants to include the country's 20,000 oil workers, which would mean an automatic cut in wages and incentives.
