RANGOON — Even though she works at least 50 hours a week, she can
hardly make ends meet. “They give me 75 kyat (less that 10 US cents) an hour.
I can no longer survive on that meager wage,” said Ma Chaw, 26, right in front
of the Tai Yi slipper factory in western Rangoon's Hlaing Tharyar Township
where she has worked for the past eight years.
