Minimum wage ‘to be set next month’

The Ministry of Labour next month will set the 2014 minimum wage for workers in Cambodia’s garment and footwear industries.

Ministry officials yesterday met with a working group of people representing workers, factory managers and the Garment Manufacturers’ Association in Cambodia to discuss formulas they could use to periodically raise the industry’s minimum wage, which currently stands at $75 per month, said Som Aun, president of the Cambodian Council of National Unions.

Ministry officials will now take into consideration reports submitted by the working group during yesterday’s meeting, said the Labour Ministry’s Vong Sovann. On December 16, the ministry will meet again and set the 2014 minimum wage.
