The World has become more oppressive of labor in recent years. Globalism is the culprit here. Big business has taken over. And it’s no coincidence that democracy has declined with it:
The Thai government should publicly oppose in court the criminal defamation charges against 14 Burmese migrant workers for filing a complaint against their employer with Thailand’s human rights commission, Human Rights Watch said. The trial is to begin on February 7, 2018, in Don Muang Magistrates Court in Bangkok. If convicted, the workers face up to a year in prison.
“The criminal defamation case against 14 migrant workers for reporting abusive labor conditions threatens all rights enforcement bodies in Thailand,” said Brad Adams, Asia director at Human Rights Watch. “The government should publicly oppose the employer’s charges and protect the ability of government agencies to act on complaints of wrongdoing.”
