Swaziland brick workers in standoff over wages

Workers employed by Langa Bricks in Swaziland are continuing their strike into a third week to demand a pay increase. The workers are demanding a rise of 3 Swazi emalangeni ($0.21) an hour. The company initially offered 0.5 Swazi emalangeni an hour ($0.04), but then withdrew it.

Langa accuse workers of sabotaging a scabbing operation by cutting the electricity supply to the company, saying this is why they have withdrawn their pay offer. The strikers said they would not return to work until an offer is made.
