Tens of thousand of Thailand’s sex workers left out of pocket due to COVID-19

Thai Rath reported that times were tough for the country's sex workers with many without any money for food and shelter or for their families. 

 

They were the first hit by losing their regular line of work as the pandemic started and they are likely to be among the last that can go back to work.

 

In addition the government has given them little assistance. 

 

The media spoke to Empower social worker Thanta Laowilawanyakun who said that the situation for many sex workers was dire.

 

Only a few qualified for government 5,000 baht handouts. Most had no money at all, no recourse to work, no money for food, no money to buy infant milk formula, no roofs over their heads and no money to repay debts.

 

The situation was particularly desperate for prostitutes from neighboring countries who have no Thai ID, no home to go to and cannot cross the border to their families.

 

The best that many sex workers could do is those that could get 5,000 baht might take in those that couldn't and pool resources.

 

Some had resorted to selling things online.

 

Thanta said 100,000 people were in serious trouble.

 

Empower had made representations to the government on their behalf but that was largely falling on deaf ears.

 

Thailand’s sex workers are not officially recognised as part of the work force for legal reasons leaving them particularly susceptible to hardship during bad times.

The last 3 days I had 3 different girls come to my room.

I picked the hottest girls on the dating sites.  Why not?

All interestingly said they worked on Soi 6.

So, they should not complain for the next few days as they were well taken care of.

And thank you, so was I. 🙂

In a country where prostitution is supposedly illegal, it would be a huge leap for the government to initiate a program to assist those participating in illegal activities. The "sex workers" should realize that it is the job of the government to screw people not them.

did they declare their annual earnings and pay an income tax owing? if they did then they have a case for assistance, if they didn't then they cant really expect help from the government. you make your bed...

Prostitution is illegal in China.

 

By the way Hubei is the province, Wuhan is a city.

OMG yes.

Amazing.

For some of us who are not paranoid never do anything types and want to live life and have a few bucks, these actually are the best of times. If not now then when? 

Fantastic actually, never better.
