I think it's better to take questions only from official and reliable source.
Self made and source-not-specified questions could be disaster to your GMAT preparation.

Agreed. Official sources are the best, but to be fair, the OA is clearly correct here. The laborers are protesting about the state they are in: they are being overworked. They aren't protesting themselves or the actual working.
