Rubber workers sue plantation

Thirteen rubber workers in Ratanakkiri province have filed a lawsuit against the

bosses of the plantation where they worked alleging that they were unfairly fired,

a local rights group said. According to Adhoc, the bosses of the plantation fired

the workers who were paid 70 percent of the market price for the rubber they collected

and replaced them with workers who accepted a 50 percent share. The bosses denied

the accusations and threatened to sue the workers for defamation, local media reported.
