In Cambodia, where garment workers, domestic workers, tuk tuk (auto rickshaw) drivers, teachers and other civil servants fall outside the labor laws and are prevented from joining unions and bargaining collectively, Solidarity Center works with Cambodian unions and other allies to protect and advance worker rights through training and support, including legal advocacy, as workers increasingly stand up for their rights and demand living wages and decent working conditions.
