Pum Sokunthy, deputy president of the local chapter of the Collective Union of Movement of Workers, said You Li International (Cambodia) Garment in Bavet City suspended the workers from May 1 to June 30.

Sokunthy told VOD on Wednesday that the workers were told by factory representatives that they would receive $70 per month in line with a government directive, with $30 provided by the factory owner.
