Vorn Channin’s salary has risen over the five years that she’s worked in a garment factory in Phnom Penh’s Pur Senchey district. But Channin said living expenses for her family have also increased.
A bundle of herbs doubled in price to 1,000 riel ($0.25) and pork increased by 3,000 riel ($0.75) per kilo early this year, she said.
Just as some food prices are rising at the market, Channin and other garment workers are becoming more concerned that their jobs could be on the chopping block.
