Govt urged to provide pensionsA civil society group yesterday urged the government to provide welfare for all and universal pension coverage to reduce economic inequality deepened by the Covid-19 crisis. "We call on the Prayut Chan-o-cha administration to provide short- and long-term assistance and welfare for all. We want Prime Minister Prayut to approve the draft national pension act so that it will be enacted as a law," said Mr Nimit. The draft national pension act advocating the idea of a universal pension in Thailand had been endorsed by over 14,000 people in a law proposal to the government. The respondents who had been made redundant said they were unsure when they would find a new job.
