When Reoun Sreyneang received notice she would be let go from her job tending hotel rooms for US$300 a month at Phnom Penh’s gold-tinted NagaWorld casino complex, she decided to accept the news without a fight.
“I don’t believe I can win against the company that has millions of dollars in its pocket. They will always win,” said the hospitality worker.
Still, she admitted she was shocked that NagaWorld, a subsidiary of Hong Kong-listed firm NagaCorp that has an exclusive licence to run a casino in Phnom Penh, would fire her and her colleagues, given the tough employment situation as Cambodia continues to grapple with the Covid-19 pandemic.
