Migrant workers strike in Italy

Workers say they are treated unfairly despite working as hard as native Italians.

    Thousands of migrant workers in Italy have gone on strike against alleged government mistreatment.

    They say they work just as hard as native Italians and pay their taxes, but are not given equal rights and benefits.

    Some of them complain that at times they don't even get paid at all for their work.
