Please read below before you next try to "screw" that street stall or night market vendor or tuk tuk driver down to the absolute minimum price you can get and think it good sport in doing so.
So what is the minimum LIVING WAGE in Cambodia these days?
My Cambodian friends have been telling me for the past two years that it is US$400 per month.
Now even the incumbent government admits it is US$395 per month.
Yes, the LIVING WAGE has been increasing very rapidly in the past few years and the gap between SURVIVAL/SUBSISTANCE Wages has also been increasing rapidly.
Monthly salaries of $400 plus are commonplace these days for the better educated and skilled. And for those with overseas graduate and post graduate qualifications from good universities in disciplines in demand $1000 per month is also commonplace.

Just because others exploit Cambodians is no excuse for you to do so.
