Key Briefs & Reports: CAMSA Investigators Discover Allegations of Wage Irregularities as Spektra Alucast

rinMarch 19, 2009: The Coalition to Abolish Modern-day Slavery in Asia (CAMSA) continues to be concerned about the situation of Vietnamese guest workers at the Malaysia-based firm Spektra Alucast.

Most recently, the workers told investigators that in the first six months of employment, all wages were paid in full and on time. However, once the company was hit by the global economic crisis, payment of wages slowed down. The company paid the workers only after employees demanded payment.  Since then, workers have been paid only RM50 to RM200 (US$13.70-US$54.80), and wages have been doled out irregularly.

CAMSA will continue to monitor the situation and keep the international community informed. You can read more about the Spektra Alucast situation by clicking here.
