No pay hike for Cambodian garment workers

Feb '10
Dialogue between Cambodia's government, the Garment Manufacturers' Association of Cambodia - the main trade body and unions, concerning a pay hike for garment workers, concluded without any decision being taken, but a representative of manufacturers announced that the members would further consider the matter.

Majority of Cambodia's 350,000 garment workers are young women engaged in stitching fabrics for exports and earning average monthly minimum wage of US $50 per month. But unions firmly opined that the wages are not sufficient and also that government's own statistics office consents to this, citing that the workers require minimum US $93 to make ends meet.

The industry has suffered on account of fall in orders during the last 18 months and proposed hike in wages would lead to further increase in costs. On account of a decline in demand from the leading US market, dozens of factories have shut down and hundreds of workers have been rendered jobless.
