ILO presses brands to absorb wage hikes

Written by John Mowbray

PHNOM PENH - The International Labour Organisation (ILO) has called on apparel brands which source from Cambodia to absorb some of the cost of implementing the new minimum wage which has recently been set at US$ 128 per month. The ILO claims garment manufacturing factories are now facing the double-whammy of rising staff wages and stagnating apparel export prices and argues that brands should look to reflect the new minimum wage in the form of higher 'Free on Board' or export prices for 2015."
