PAGO PAGO, American Samoa (May 2, 2001 – Radio Australia)---America Samoan workers who were employed at the now defunct Korean-run garment company Daewoosa Samoa have filed a claim for unpaid wages with the office of Governor Tauese Sunia.

Some of the employees say they were not paid for up to five weeks.

They are also claiming back wages for salary increases that were not received for three months.

About 50 Samoan workers were employed at the troubled garment plant when it closed down in February.
