Garment workers strike back in Cambodia

Issue No. 2213

Some 3,000 garment workers in Cambodia struck last week in defence of a suspended union rep.

One striker, a 26-year old mother of three, told Socialist Worker, “We went back to work on Monday but the mood to fight is still there. The company don’t pay enough for me to just have silly days off without good reason.

'I can’t pay my bills as it is. We want more pay and we want to be treated with respect. We shouldn’t have to fight for that—but we will.’’
