The Thai government must do more to ease the financial strain placed upon the people due to the pandemic and the struggling economy, an opposition parliamentarian told Thai Enquirer on Monday.

 

The country has seen commodity prices jump due to inflation, stagnant wages, and increasing unemployment due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

None of these taxes affect the poorest of the population who

also suffer the worst, so what is the MP really complaining about.

just  trying to make  political points ..
