Fifty workers in Saudi Arabia have reportedly gone on strike over unpaid wages.

It has been alleged that the workers have not been paid in seven months.

The workers have visited the Ministry of Labour twice to lodge complaints against their employer - but no agreement has been reached as yet, Arabian Business reported, citing the Saudi Gazette.

The Saudi newspaper was reportedly shown documents relating to the case, which show that the workers have not been paid their salaries since April.

According to reports, the company is experiencing financial difficulties and has previously delayed wage payments by up to three months at a time.
