Fashion brands fail to address pandemic-era wage theft in Cambodia

During the Covid-19 outbreak and ensuing lockdown in April and May 2021, the 784 thousand workers employed in Cambodia’s apparel, footwear, and leather industry lost an estimated US$ 109 million in wages. This figure is a projection based on a comprehensive assessment of 114 factories conducted by trade union federations. Combined with outstanding wages and severance pay since the beginning of the pandemic, the total amount owed to garment workers in Cambodia is estimated to be a total of US$ 393 million.
