Former Employees of Future TV Protested For Their Overdue Salaries Outside of Hariri’s House

On international Labor Day, employees of Future TV gathered under the house of former Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s home in Beirut.

Founded by the Hariri family, the network has not paid the salaries of its employees for two years before its closure in 2019. It also laid off its employees without compensation

The anger is also coupled with the alleged fact that, in 2019, Saad Hariri gave $16 million to a South Africa model, a scandal not easily forgotten.

It is a worldwide knowledge that the Hariri family possesses enormous combined wealth.

Bahaa Hariri made it to Forbes Magazine’s billionaire list, again in 2019, with a net worth of $2.1 billion. His brother Ayman as well with a net worth of $1.3 billion, and his brother Fahd with a net worth of $1.2 billion.

Future TV ran for 26 years before closing. Its former employees are still fighting for their basic rights, which have now become a luxury in a Lebanon crippled with debt and financial corruption.
