PHNOM PENH – Garment workers who are laid off in Cambodia because of the COVID-19 pandemic are to receive even less financial compensation than originally announced.

Prime Minister Hun Sen said garment workers would receive just US$70 a month - around 37 per cent of the minimum wage - instead of the 60 per cent, about US$114, he originally promised.

The government would provide US$40 while factory owners would pay the other US$30. The announcement came just days after factory owners said they could no longer afford the original package, in which they were to pay 40 per cent of the minimum wage while the government paid the other 20 per cent.
