43 Cambodians Convicted of Crimes in the USA & Deported to Cambodia Arrive Today

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

No, re-read what I said.
Would you go to a job interview and say straight away what's the salary without listening to a word about what the job was about or without asking questions yourself about it to seen if it was something you could do or had an interest in?

Asking off the bat "what's the pay?" Or a variation on that is what these 3 guys all did. I've interviewed lots of people for jobs in this country and these 3 were the only ones to come out with such a blatant question. Apart from anything else at the bare minimum it was rude. But maybe you think that's acceptable? The pay would have been decent for what it's worth.
What kind of project was it and why did you contact three convicted criminals?

Cambodians Deported from USA

Post by Jacobincambodia »

While I don’t personally know all the reasons these Cambodians were deported, I do know many of them were escaping war and some of them have been in the U.S. for decades. It’s sad to me there wasn’t a different solution. Many will have no idea how to integrate into a country they know nothing about. Many don’t know the language and won’t get assistance. Let’s not toss real human beings around and just see what happens. That’s simply not love.

Negros? Do you mean Negroes? They're a nationality now?

I read that the govt is organising Khmer lessons, a place to stay, and training for them, ie blue-collar trade

If they fuck that up, then they really do deserve nuffink

Let's wait and see before judging

agree, dont most job offers advertise roughly what the salary would be? if not, then you cant take offence if someone asks what the wages are...

im self employed builder, and if someone offers me a job the first thing id say before even seeing the job would be what are the prices?
the only other exception is if if someone wants me to do a job and i will go see the job and quote them a price,

work is work, people work for money not for love, its not a hobby, its a livelihood, if the salary isnt good enough for what the future employee needs, why waste every ones time further with an interview etc.

Another point is that these guys will not be applying for highbrow jobs, probably labouring/blue collar/simple admin jobs, and as Jamie points out, at blue-collar level, pay is queried very quickly.

However, if they were interviewing for a CEO position, then the protocol is somewhat different, and they would get around to the question later on, and in a more subtle way.
