PHNOM PENH - Cambodian workers producing apparel for companies including Adidas, VF Corp, Target, Nike and Gap were deprived of an estimated US$109 million in wages during COVID-19 lockdowns in April and May 2021, according to campaigners.

This figure is a projection of the total wages lost by the 784,000 workers employed in Cambodia’s apparel, footwear, and leather industries based on an assessment of 114 factories, employing 204,000 people, conducted by trade union federations.

Workers right groups, including the Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC) and Cambodian trade unions, are now calling on brands to pay workers’ their full wages throughout the pandemic and to sign an enforceable agreement to prevent future 'pay theft'.
