Employees of Cambodia’s NagaWorld are protesting after they say the casino, one of the most profitable in the world, stopped paying wages for furloughed staff.
The casino — which made $521 million in profit last year and recorded gross gaming revenue of $1.7 billion — has been closed since March amid ongoing measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.
According to the head of a staff union, Naga agreed to pay 50% of salary to workers during April, but left the issue of following months’ wages unresolved. Then, at a meeting on May 28, managers announced salaries would be suspended in June.
