Strikes: The common denominator

Oil workers protest عمال البترول يطالبون بالتثبيت
Although the current strike wave is still largely spontaneous without organized leadership, the common denominator between all the industrial actions remain:

1- Ridding the workplace from the corrupt managers, who are in most of the cases personnel affiliated with the Mubarak’s regime and its neoliberal program.

2- Job security. Most of the Egyptian workers spend years in the workplace without contracts, though social security and taxes are still deducted from their monthly salaries or daily wages.
