Country’s Buyers Discuss Faintings, Union Law

Multiple government ministries and the International Labor organization will form a group to investigate the mass fainting that have plagued Cambodia’s garment industry over the past several months, Commerce Minister Cham Prasidh said yesterday. There have been at least 15 mass fainting since the beginning of the year, affecting hundreds of garment workers. Chemical odors, overheating, malnutrition, and exhaustion have all been cited as possible causes, but few conclusions have been reached.
