Cabinet approves extra holiday for Songkran, making it six-day holidays


Deputy government spokesman Phumin Leetheeraprasert said the Cabinet Tuesday approved one additional holiday for the Songkran holidays and the National Mother's Day period. As a result, Songkran would be for six days from April 13-18, and Mother's Day would be for four days from August 12-15.

The Cabinet also approved three days off in lieu of the Makha Puja Day on March 1, the Chulalongkorn Day on October 25, and National Father's Day on December 6, he said.

I wonder how employers will react to that. Will they not just shorten the monthly salaries for these additional unproductive days? Or will they happily grant extra bonuses for family celebrations? :-[

The way the economy is cutting salaries is the only option, many companies in Thailand aren't in the position to be throwing money around, I know in the construction game there won't be many of them being paid not to work.
