About 50 entertainment workers today submitted a petition to the Labour Ministry for a second time, asking it to dole out $40 out-of-work allowances a month since they have been adversely affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
Pov Chamrong, one of the entertainment workers, said that they came to the ministry again after it turned down their request.
“The Ministry used to reject our request, but we are still trying to ask it again because our livelihoods have faced difficulties amid the Covid-19,” she said.
Entertainment establishments, along with schools, are still closed as a precautionary measure against the spread of the virus in the Kingdom.
On June 10, a petition by the group was denied by the ministry, who instead encouraged them to find new jobs.
