The complainant reported that the factory had not paid the promised over time wages to workers for public holiday work. The complainant stated that the factory requested all workers to work on Eid (22 August) with the promise of paying 10,000 MMK on 25 August. But on 25 August, the factory postponed the payment without giving any reason to 28 August. On 28 August, the workers were told that they would be paid on 31 August. The complainant indicated that most of them worked during the holiday only because they were in need of money. They were very looking forward to the OT wage but they were disappointed by the management about the delayed and unclear payment.
