Workers rally for living wage

US$150 minimum wage for garment factory workers is feasible according to research; current minimum wage is US$61.

Profit made by H&M, GAP, Puma and other big brands is close to US$1 billion/year from Cambodian workers.

US$2 billion is spent on administrative costs, transportation and others including unofficial fees= corruption.

Workers’demands for US$150 and other benefits must be met through transparent dialogues and negotiations and not court orders and police crackdowns.
