Dissatisfied with the Thai government's failure to help them receive severance pay after the Inter Moda garment factory closed without advance notice, 10 laid-off women workers on Tuesday stripped naked in front of Government House while Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont was meeting with his cabinet inside. About 300 factory workers have been protesting at the Government House since Monday, demanding that the government intervene and help them get severance pay following the closure of their company on Aug. 26. They are asking the government to pay some 24 million baht in severance pay that the company failed to give to them. After the 10 women workers stripped, they quickly covered themselves with banners and began shouting protest slogans.
