Cambodia casino staff strike over pay at billion-dollar gambling den

Thousands of Cambodian workers at a Phnom Penh casino that turns over more than a billion dollars a year continued a strike Friday (Jan 10) calling for better pay, in a country where Chinese money has driven a gambling boom.

About 3,000 workers joined the rare walkout in front of the NagaWorld complex in the capital, one of around 100 casinos which have shot up – many in the last few years to serve a flood of Chinese customers – across the kingdom.

The protesters held banners and cheered as dozens of police officers watched over the protest.
