Cambodia’s labour ministry recently announced deliberations for next year’s minimum wage for workers in the textile, garment and footwear sector will start in August. As the sector is badly hit by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the negotiations this year are widely expected to be tougher. The monthly minimum wage for garment workers in 2020 is $190.
The National Council on Minimum Wage will hold meetings between representatives of unions, employers and the government to iron out proposals put on the table for negotiations, the ministry said in a statement.
