Entertainment workers make fresh appeal for gov’t support

A group of more than 20 entertainment industry workers submitted a second petition to the Labor Ministry on June 10 appealing for financial assistance while KTVs and nightclubs remain closed amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

Oum Manith, vice president of the Cambodian Food and Service Workers Federation (CFSWF) union, led the group of entertainment workers to the ministry to submit their petition, which had been thumbprinted by 99 workers calling on the Labor Ministry to provide them with emergency funding.

“The workers requested the government provide them with $40 per month until the Covid-19 virus has eased and until their workplaces open again,” Manith said. “They also requested the government help to intervene with landlords to reduce the fees of rental homes, water, and electricity and to help them afford food.”
