One day strike

Lebanon's Daily Star reports:

The General Labor Confederation (GLC) on Monday called a one-day general strike in Lebanon for 7 May because of the government's refusal to raise the minimum wage from LL300,000 (£100) to LL960,000 (£321) per month.

The GLC said it wanted to set a new monthly minimum wage of LL960,000, with an additional 63.3-percent pay raise for workers in the private sector. In a statement, the confederation called on employees from the private and public sectors to participate.
