NagaWorld casino workers petition government for financial help

More than 200 NagaWorld employees submitted a petition at the Ministry of Labor to request a stimulus payment of $40 per month as entertainment venues remain closed in a bid to contain the spread of Covid-19.

Chhim Sithar, 32, president of NagaWorld’s Khmer Employees’ Labor Rights Support Union said outside the ministry that she and other employees of the casino’s gaming department brought their petition to the ministry because they have not been given the $40 monthly allotment provided to workers in other sectors hit hard by Covid-19.

“We told His Excellency who represents the Labor Ministry that workers in the gaming department of NagaWorld have not received a $40 of budget of support from the government,” Sithar said. She added that NagaWorld had only paid workers 50 percent of their wages in April and May, and had notified employees it would stop paying them from June onward.
