A strike is reported to be ongoing in Velidhu Island Resort. The protesters are demanding the employer not to discriminate agains staff in similar jobs based on nationality. The protesters report that some of their colleagues with same job specifications earn more than 200 dollars more than themselves (locals). Also that the local staff do not recieve annual increments on the salary while others gets 50 dollar increments per year. The problem has been duly notified to the Labour Relations Authority and apparently the strike is going on in earnest. The resort meanwhile is maintaining silence and has not defended the allegations against it.
