Swedish clothing giant H&M is facing criticism, after one of their supplier companies fired hundreds of workers who demanded better working conditions.

The supplier's factory is based in Cambodia, and saw a strike in the middle of September, over better pay and working conditions, reports Swedish radio news.

The strike was declared illegal by the Cambodian government. Now 300 workers in the H&M supplier are without work, as they are being punished for their role in the strike.

The factory in Cambodia is owned by a Chinese company. The workers say to Swedish radio news that their pay of 60 US dollars a month is not enough to live on.
