KUWAIT, June 26 (KUNA) -- Most people in Kuwait tend to stay indoors to escape the soaring temperature, which reached around 50 Degrees Celsius and more.
However, some brave souls have no option but to work under the unbearable weather conditions despite the government decision to ban outside labor from 11:00 a.m. to 04:00 p.m. local time.
The General Authority for Manpower has been receiving complaints about the decision's violation with its inspection teams and human rights activists documenting such ill practices. (end) as.gta
