The World Federation of Trade Unions representing 92 million workers in the 5 continents, strongly condemns the anti-labour practices and the starvation wages that the bosses and the administration of the plastics factory in Hlaing Tharyar township in Yangon Region of Myanmar give to the workers.
More than 100 workers stated that the paid wages are even lower than the extremely low level of basic minimum wages. The situation in this factory is just an indicative example for the wages levels for the majority of the Myanmar workers who produce everything and they are forced to live in appalling conditions of poverty and deprivation.
This situation can be changed only through the decisive, conscious and class oriented struggles of the trade union movement for the satisfaction of the contemporary needs of the working class. The WFTU affirm that always will support with all its forces the struggling workers all over the world for dignified work with rights.
