Despite martial law, Thailand workers plan to picket U.S. embassy - 10/09/06

By Jesse Russell

Even with martial law imposed in Thailand placing a ban on public gatherings, more than 1,000 Thai lingerie workers are planning a protest outside of the U.S. embassy. The workers were laid-off from Gina Form Bra when it was announced work would be moving to Chain. The workers are demanding severance pay that would amount to roughly 2.6 million U.S. dollars. The company makes high end lingerie for such companies as Calvin Klein and Victoria's Secrets. The workers hope the new government, which took power in a bloodless coup on September 19, will understand why they need to protest.
