A wave of strikes has been sweeping Egypt for over a month, bringing some sectors to a standstill.
The strike by about 38,000 public bus drivers forced authorities to use the army and the private sector to provide alternative services, costing the government over $100,000.
Doctors, steel and textile workers are among those who have also carried out industrial action.
