Cambodian private sector worried over universal wage law
Cambodia’s private sector is worried over the uncertainty created by the proposed universal minimum wage law, according to Sok Lor, secretary general of the Cambodian Federation of Employers, who said recently that new labour laws, including a national social security scheme and a higher minimum wage for garment workers, have already put businesses on edge.

The government is also planning to introduce a new minimum wage law, rather than solely focusing on the garment sector, and the labour ministry is likely to send a draft of the same to the council of ministers by 2017 end, he said.

As it is politically incorrect to say employees should not have increased wages and new regulations are a result of populist government policies, wage has to be attached to productivity, a newspaper report in Cambodia quoted Lor as saying.

The private sector under any situation cannot fight any government decision, he added.

Moeun Tola, director of labour rights group Central, said that if a universal minimum wage is adopted, it should reflect the increased cost of living, not an employer’s perception of productivity or profits. (DS)
