Cambodia's garment industry is the country's main industry and its leading export revenue earner. Most of the 300.000 employees are young women from rural areas. Through their work and remittances they often crucially contribute to their family's survival in one of the word's poorest countries. In 2009 the global economic downturn has forced around 50,000 workers to lose their jobs. Four shorts (A DAY IN THE FACTORY; A DAY AROUND THE FACTORY; A DAY OFF FROM THE FACTORY; A WEEKEND WITH THE MANAGER) look at the crisis viewed through the prism of the workers, union representatives, entrepreneurs and a female manager.
