Employees demand Cambodian casino Naga pay furloughed staff

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.
