Phnom Penh: On February 9, 2018, 40 Chinese construction workers from Sihanoukville held a protest demonstration over unpaid wages outside the Commercial Office of the Chinese Embassy at Mao Zedong Street, Khan Chamkamorn, Phnom Penh.

Haha, I had my headphones on and was sitting in the middle of traffic and could still hear him. He was pissed off about something, not the first time I've seen someone yelling at the embassy there either. Then again, the same could probably be said for all embassies, dealing with them is definitely a test of bureaucratic patience.

These guys are staunch as construction workers usually are. I remember many years ago about 200 marched from Koh Pic I think to the Embassy. They were flown home soon afterwards.

The Chinese construction workers are complaining that they were hired to work for $60 a day in Sihanoukville. However, some have not been paid their wages for 3 months, some for 4 months, and others for 5 months. They are now desperate, which is why they organized a protest in Phnom Penh, where they are calling on the representatives of the Chinese government to intervene.
The name of their employer is not reported here.
