Sophorn Yang, President of the Cambodian Alliance of Trade Unions (CATU) and United Nations Delegate to the Status for the Commission on Women. In 2016, Sophorn was instrumental to the successful living wage fight to raise the national minimum living wage fight to $158 per month, a near doubling from two years prior. CATU represents Nike workers at several factories, and the union is fighting for neutrality to organize hundreds of more Cambodian Nike workers in a dangerously anti-union climate.
