PHNOM PENH, Cambodia — Workers here are battling for a higher minimum wage, a fight that took a bloody turn earlier this month when armed security forces fired live rounds into crowds of rioting workers, killing at least four people and injuring more than 30.
While labor activists and workers contend that $160 a month is the wage necessary to address the basic needs of an average worker, the government and manufacturers believe that such a drastic increase would cripple the industry and scare away investors.
