Matichon Online reported yesterday that social message is saying that…

“Tesco Lotus lay off staff around the country. What will they do next and can other staffer handle the pressure.” (Translated)

Some people have commented saying….

“…my branch lay off 19 staffers. This happened since the start of the year but the news hasn’t been revealing as staffers are going to protest.”
