The local workers have been on strike since February 7th, 2009 and have been protesting for pay since. The local workers are pleading for the US Government to intervene because their families are in desperate needs at this moment for financial help. The local workers have complained about taxes in which Dynamic Corporation cut monthly out of their pay is not reported to the Nigerian Tax Revenue Office.
