Around 170 workers held a protest on Wednesday by blocking the road and grabbing equipment from their factory in Kandal province’s Sa’ang district after the owner failed to pay their wages.
Sa’ang district deputy police chief Oeun Peng An told The Post on Thursday that the protest erupted after the workers heard a rumour that the TY factory in the district’s Sa’ang Phnom commune became bankrupt, with the owner prepared to ship out the factory’s equipment without paying their wages.
This is how workers called upon consumers for support:
I MADE THE PRODUCT YOU ARE ABOUT TO BUY, BUT I HAVEN’T RECEIVED ANY PAYMENT!
We are the Bravo factory workers who made this product you are about to buy. Years long we have produced for Zara. our factory suddenly closed without paying us our last 3 months of wages and severance payment. Please tell Zara to pay us our money!
