Dozens of TSC supermarket chains in Lebanon and representatives of labor unions staged a sit-in in front of the Kuwaiti Embassy in Beirut Thursday to demand the prompt payment of their late salaries.TSC is a Kuwait-based company which has made over $250 million of investments in supermarkets in Lebanon since 2008 .At the protest, the president of the National Federation of Worker and Employee Trade Unions in Lebanon, Castro Abdullah, delivered a speech calling on the Kuwaiti government to support workers' rights to have their salaries paid, following the closure of TSC supermarkets across Lebanon.The reasons behind the closure of TSC supermarkets in Lebanon are not clear, though insiders say TSC has incurred losses in the hundreds of millions of dollars since it opened in Lebanon almost a decade ago.
