KMU BACKS CAMBODIAN WORKERS

0

MILITANT group Kilusang Mayo Uno (KMU) on Monday condemned the Cambodian government’s repression of striking garment workers as well as its refusal to hike workers’ wages. On January 3, the Cambodian military fired automatic rifles on protestors in the Canadia Industrial Park in Phnom Penh who were supporting a nationwide strike launched by garment workers 10 days before, killing at least four people and injuring dozens. The garment workers were calling for an increase in the industry’s monthly minimum wage to $160 a month, which was rejected by the Cambodian government in favor of a $100-minimum wage.
