    The presumption that every one the developers are unscrupulous and sitting on piles of cash whereas no longer paying the workers is theory. The worth of a mission under no circumstances indicates the cash dwelling of the developer. Essentially, no work for the developers = No pay for the workers. Sad nonetheless actuality. The LOCKING IN of the workers is the root for this human tragedy. I engage it is a government decision. If that is the choice taken, it is the duty of the federal government to feed the “prisoners”. Aren't the inmates in official prisons getting food? And the keep are the vaccine dosages? Thailand wishes to be idea to be no longer third world. Right here is the marker – Free vaccine for all. Don't discriminate in opposition to farang/Thai and prisoner/detainee. You are covering plans to kind the sandbox in other places in Thailand. Please point our the folly here. It’ll also be the contribution of the Thaiger to saving lives. The promotion of tourism, wherein potentialities are you’ll perhaps well luxuriate in engaged (by the sheer likelihood of company on the impress within the tourism industry) has confirmed potentialities are you’ll perhaps well luxuriate in taken facets to support unstable enterprise. Now that potentialities are you’ll perhaps well luxuriate in touched a nerve with this worker camp, you appear to be enjoying that up. Time to kind a stand. If reviewed, your sandbox protection has been nearly entirely on the aspect of “getting farang here so we can elevate their cash”.
