Workers at NagaWorld Casino in Cambodia Strike

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

This week 3,000 workers walked out on strike against NagaWorld Casino in the Cambodian city of Phnom Penh, seeking better wages from their employer.

NagaWorld is one of about 100 casinos in the city, and it draws in billions of dollars a year in wagers and generates hundreds of millions of dollars in profits. The workers picketed in front of the complex, holding banners while demanding better pay from the casino. Currently, workers typically make between $190-$300 per month, and the workers feel that there's room for improvement.

Speaking about the matter union official Chhim Sithar said, "We are demanding a pay increase to $500 a month for casino staff and $300 for people who work in the hotel. The company made a huge profit in recent years."

We'll update readers as the negotiations continue.

As always in such stories I'll take the workers side against the boss...first of all most of the people wouldn't risk their job if they are just greedy...probably they really feel they've been underpaid by their employer and I really hope the strike will end with a good agreement for the laborers.
