The Royal Government continued to transfer USD 40 per month for January to March 2021 for each worker/employee working in the garment and tourism sectors, who suffered work suspension due to COVID19.

I don't know about the situation in this country or that of the status of the rich. We all seem to have a gripe with anyone that seems to be more well off, for them to have got there, it's a chance they may have done wrong along the way.
But it's these people that usually give more support to the structure of one's country, firstly, and simply being that of larger tax payers.

221 new factories opened in Cambodia in 2020, 100 shut
09 Jan '21

Two hundred and twenty one new factories opened in Cambodia in 2020, according to the ministry of industry, science, technology and innovation, which said 100 factories closed down due to the impact of the pandemic. The total number of factories in the country by the end of last year was 1,853 and these employed 900,000 Cambodian workers.

The ministry’s secretary of state Heng Sokkong said despite the crisis, investor confidence in the government resulted in many factories being opened.

In 2020, 178 new investment projects with an investment capital of $4.147 billion were approved by the Council for the Development of Cambodia. Most were in the garment and textile sector, according to a report in Cambodian English-language daily.

Last year’s factory closures were mainly in the garment manufacturing sector and sub-contractors supplying semi-finished products.

Cambodia’s exports in clothes, footwear and travel goods declined by 9 per cent for the first 10 months of last year, according to data from the General Department of Customs and Excise.

Workers walk out, protest unpaid benefits
Long Kimmarita | Publication date 14 January 2021 | 21:53 ICT

Workers at two factories – one in Pursat province and the other in Phnom Penh – staged protests on January 12 and 14 respectively to demand seniority payments and other benefits.

In Phnom Penh, more than 1,000 workers of Ying Hy Garment Co, Ltd, in Stung Meanchey commune’s Trea village protested after the factory delayed issuing their seniority payments again, allegedly breaking a promise made earlier this month.

Bronh Chanty, one of the protesting workers, said: “We demand the seniority payments for 2019 and 2020. The company had promised to give us the payments this year, citing the Covid-19 crisis as reason [for the delay].
“But now the factory has announced that it decided to delay the payments to workers indefinitely,” she said.

Separately in Pursat province’s Krakor district, nearly 5,000 factory workers of Taieasy International Co, Ltd, in Anlong Tnort commune’s Tonsay Koul village protested on January 12 to demand seniority pay and annual leave compensation.

The workers blocked off a section of National Road 5 where the factory stands, but later called off the protest after the company agreed to meet some of their demands.

That's bad news for the 1000+ workforce and potentially $40,000+ for the government to payout per month.
