Around 200 workers at a factory in Phnom Penh took to the streets yesterday to protest after their employer went missing without paying their wages.
 
Lim Bori, president of the Workers Trade Union Federation at the factory, said staff at the Young Siv factory in Por Senchey district were angry and confused.
 
“We do not know why the owner disappeared,” said Mr Bori, adding the workers had gathered in the street outside the factory to demand they be paid.
 
“The employer ran away on Saturday. We have not yet asked union officials to intervene because his wife is still around, so we are waiting for her to sort it out for us.”
 
The company could not be reached for comment.
 
According to the Labour Ministry, there were 220 strikes and demonstrations at 211 workplaces last year.
