WASHINGTON — Factory owners and Western brands and retailers share responsibility in the events that led up to the deadly crackdown by the Cambodian government on apparel worker protests in January, according to a Workers Rights Consortium report released Tuesday.
In “Crackdown in Cambodia: Workers Seeking Higher Wages Meet Violent Repression,” the labor rights watchdog called on several U.S. and European companies producing apparel there to address the violence and to require that their factory owners increase the minimum wage paid to workers.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
