Last Friday, a double-decker bus carrying nearly 50 registered Myanmar workers was engulfed in flames, trapping the passengers inside and immediately killing 20. The workers had been picked up at the Thai/Myanmar border and was en route to Pathum Thani province. While the cause of this disaster is not known, it highlights the precarious and unsafe conditions that many migrant workers from Myanmar face in Thailand. Thailand’s light industrial, farming and aquaculture sectors rely on the super exploitation of millions of migrant workers, the majority of whom come from Myanmar.
