More than 600 workers of SEPIA garment factory today protested in front of their factory in Phnom Penh’s Por Senchey district to demand their missing wages.
Sok Kha, one of the protestors, said that they demanded their wages from April 1 to 17.
He said that the company promised to pay workers May 9 but now no one is paid.
“In 2020, the factory has paid us very late. And from April 1 to 17, the company has not paid us,” he said, adding he and others have hard time to pay house rent.
GMAC released a statement saying that now 180 factories have suspended their operation, with 60 more in the pipeline, which is wreaking havoc on the more than 150,000 workers.
