Labour network rallies for more assistance

NationalJan 26. 2021

Members of the Labour Network for People’s Rights rallied outside Government House on Tuesday demanding that the government pay Bt5,000 to each member of the country’s workforce for three months.

On January 19, the Cabinet approved the “RaoChana” (WeWin) cash-handout campaign, in which Bt3,500 will be handed for two months to the self-employed, farmers and welfare-card holders. Those eligible can register from Thursday onwards and the cash can be withdrawn via a smartphone application.

The protesters said the money was too little and giving access to the assistance via a smartphone app would leave many out of the loop. They also rejected the plan of transferring Bt1,000 per week, saying some people needed more cash to survive.
