With funding support from American Center for International Labor Solidarity, CamboJA conducted a survey on media coverage of Cambodian labor issues from 11 media outlets for the first half of 2020.The results from the study show that 43 percent of stories produced by CamboJA during the first six months of 2020 were labor stories. Over 13 percent of VOD’s news stories published in the same period of time are also labor ones. Meanwhile Post Khmer, BTV, CNC, Fresh News, AKP, CEN, VAYO, Thmey Thmey covered less than 3 per cent, some even less than 1 per cent.The study suggests private and state media should give more space for labor content and all relevant sources should be included in the stories rather than having a single source, usually government or employers.
