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.
