Angkor Beer Promoters Protest for More Overtime Pay

Angkor Beer promoters held a protest outside of Cambrew Ltd in Phnom Penh in order to receive more overtime pay on the weekends, following an Arbitration Council order that the company pay each employee $2 more and Angkor Beer’s failure to do so. The 30 or so protestors said they would protest until the Arbitration Council’s order was met and they were provided with unlimited work contracts for employees who had been with the company for more than two years. According to the Cambodian Food and Service Worker’s Federation vice president, Ou Tephalin, the company has violated labor law by not paying the additional $2.
