Mass fainting in Puma

Correction: Only one factory provides products for Puma, Huey Chuien.

Another national news of big concern is related to a mass dismay of about 800 young female workers at the Universal Apparel Cambodia Co Ltd and the Huey Chuien Cambodia Corp Ltd, the last one of the German sport shoes Puma, between Saturday and Sunday. The young women have been attended in the hospital but the reasons of the curious mass dismay remain dark. Puma officials have not made declarations to the public opinion so far. It could be related with labor conditions according to assumptions. Female workers in factories like these have monthly salaries of 61 US dollars. It is good to remind that a pair of Puma shoes can have a cost of between 50 and 70 US dollars, a price that our passed out girls could hardly buy.
