The Thai PM has been vocal in his criticism of Israeli bosses who’ve offered more money to Thai workers in a bid to get them to stay. Nation Thailand reports that Srettha Thavisin made an official complaint during a phone call with the Israeli ambassador to Thailand, Orna Sagiv.

“I have aired my dissatisfaction by saying they should not have used money to tempt Thai workers. It is not right for them to do so.”

According to the report, the Israeli ambassador responded by saying she was unaware of the development but would look into it. She too expressed her concern for Thai workers.

The PM has already made clear his belief that all Thai workers should leave Israel for their own safety. However, many continue to remain in the danger zone, tempted by higher salaries.

In addition, the PM says some Thai workers say payment of their October salary has been pushed back to November 10 by some bosses. Srettha says he also raised this issue with the Israeli ambassador, who says she had not heard about the matter and would investigate further.

There are currently believed to be 19 Thai nationals being held hostage by Hamas, while 30 have died in the conflict.
