Workers Protest D.I. Riviera Project on Diamond Island in Phnom Penh Over Unpaid Salaries

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Sat Oct 28, 2017 4:40 pm

Many Cambodian and Chinese construction workers protested DI Riviera Condos demanding that they take responsibility for their paid labor costs already completed on the construction. They allege that the company deliberately refrained from paying compensation for labor costs.

So far, Cambodian-Chinese construction workers have gathered near the 30-storey Diamond Island Condo in Phnom Penh's Chamkarmon district.

According to Cambodian workers, the work has been done but the company had failed to pay the contractors. According to the workers, after D.I.RIVIERA took Vietnamese laborers to takeover the work at lower rates, they refused to pay the former Khmer and Chinese laborers.

Some have alleged that the company has instead paid authorities to pressure the workers into dropping their case because they had been working without proper visas or work permits and were risking to be in trouble themselves.

Despite these statements, claims, the Ministry of Labor's says they had not heard of the workers' claims until the morning of October 28, 2017.

all smoke and mirrors now with the china government's directions to shift investment priorities as mentioned elsewhere.
not saying this particular company is chinese- just that the source of funding has been officially de emphasised as an outbound investment.
so that will flow through to the whole market.

Isn't it the truth, though?

The Future of Phnom Penh is the removal of foreigners and underperformers, with replacement by cheaper (foreign) workers.

They *they* get removed, and only big eyed, pretty girls, son-in-laws and their buddies remain. Only Khmer. Why?

Too expensive. Forget income and sales. Too much trouble, mostly incompatible. Fat chance.

Focus of many Khmer Khmers (unsullied by Western ideals, like Sing/Malay/Phil workers) is avoidance, survival, and smiles and politeness (appeasement). Almost NO English. There will be ONE thinker/doer, and s/he will be too busy for nonsense.

Not a malicious uprooting. Just expect a performance review, like any others business, after a few months.

Having some exit routes planned out.

Good for you. Less frustration, learning curves, and no more crumpled expectations of basic courtesies, like replies or a clear yes/no.

Strange that Chinese were uprooted. I wonder how many.

Some VN are good. Some clear away all snakes, stray dogs, and any wildlife in the area. Voracious little slant-eyed shrews.
Melvin Udall: Never, never, interrupt me, okay?

Not if there's a fire, not even if you hear the sound of a thud from my home and one week later there's a smell coming from there that can only be a decaying human body and you have to hold a hanky to your face because the stench is so thick that you think you're going to faint.

Even then, don't come knocking...Not for ANY reason.

Interesting, as there's a DI project in Sihanoukville as well.
