PHNOM PENH (The Cambodia Herald) –  The Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation has urged clothing and footwear workers to keep working pending salary negotiations.


A statement issued by Minister Ith Sam Heng Monday said a working group had appealed to organizations, unions, workers and employers to maintain stability.


The announcement came a day after union leaders Rong Chhun and Yang Sophorn led workers in a protest demanding salary increases of $61 to $150 a month.


Basic salaries of clothing and footwear workers are currently $61 a month. Cambodia's 400 garment factories employ about 400,000 workers.
