SINGAPORE — Following threats by garment industry unions to hold a mega strike next month, the Cambodian government has agreed to raise wages and increase cost of living allowances, regional media reported Wednesday.
From Sept. 1, workers will see their monthly wages rise to at least $73, up from the current $66, according to the reports. As recently as 2009, the minimum wage was set at about $50.
