We never have to guess which side of the fence Mr. Hun Sen is sitting on when it comes to his support for freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and workers’ rights.
A confident leader would take the opening of the mall to remind investors of corporate social responsibility and such a leader would offer more to the workers by giving them praise on how they are also part of the economic growth.
Mr. Hun Sen will hopefully read this article and read the reality : the workers make an extra $1 for over time. This is the top of the top mall in a country that is still debating on $160 as minimum wage.
What about the killing of the workers on Veng Sreng last January? Is that how workers will be dealt with if and when they go on strike at this top of the top mall?
