Omani workers have gone on strike at Oman's Rusayl Industrial Estate asking for five-day work weeks and Eid public holidays on par with government employees and the public sector.

On the occasion of most Omani public holidays, religious or not, the public sector systematically gets more days off than the private sector (2011-02-13, 2010-12-11, and 2010-12-01, among many recent examples).
