Hundreds of workers have been fainting en masse in factories in Cambodia supplying clothes to the UK high street because they haven't had enough to eat, and they are overworked. This is the shocking consequence of the fact that they are paid poverty wages.
Over 80% of Cambodian garment workers are women, and their families and children are their main consideration when worrying about their wage. They have to make daily choices between feeding themselves and feeding/educating their kids. The wage they are paid simply isn't enough.
Do come along!
