Thailand’s Social Welfare and Labor Protection Department (SWLPD) will seriously tackle the problem of child labor this year, with the aim to eradicate it in 2020, the Thai-language daily Matichon reported today (Oct 19, 2018).
Acting SWLDP director-general Wiwat Tabhong also mentioned forced labor in the fishing industry, which must be seriously dealt with.
Meanwhile, the department will encourage healthy old people to continue working. A list of jobs for elderly people can be accessed on the SWLDP’s website.
