Sok, 19, Paid Poverty Wages as Domestic Worker in Cambodia

Sok Rathana, 19, has been a domestic worker in Cambodia for two years, working 100 hours a month for $70 while attending high school. Her family is poor, and her mother also is a domestic worker.

As in many countries, domestic workers in Cambodia are not covered by labor laws and so have no minimum wage, safety and health protections or other basic employment benefits.

As Sok says, “I don’t think I have full rights as a domestic worker.”
