‘We would protest until we get paid’


Workers staged a picket once more in front of the Imperial Pacific Resort in Garapan yesterday to pressure their construction companies to pay them their wages.

Some 40 workers joined yesterday’s protest action. The workers, through a translator, said they would continue to “protest until we receive what we are entitled to under the law.”

The workers are part of a group that entered the CNMI as tourists and later worked on building the IPR under subcontractors hired to build the casino resort. They were all told to stop working in April this year and have since been waiting for their wages for their wages.

“This is why we have been protesting,” said the group.

The 40-some protesters include construction workers from Suzhou Gold Mantis Construction Decoration, MCC International, CMC Macau, and Beilida Overseas (CNMI) Ltd.
