BANGKOK, 12th February 2019 (NNT) - Dusit Poll reports that Thai people want better standards of living after the election.

 

A recent survey conducted by Suan Dusit University of 58,572 people between January 1 and February 9, 2019, showed that the majority of eligible voters back policies that would lift their wellbeing.

 

Up to 30.24% of male respondents said they would support parties with policies that promote employment and income generation, and 30.91% of female respondents said they would support similar policies, along with policies to boost economic growth, trade, investment, and agricultural prices.

 

29.15% of respondents aged between 18 and 20 said they would vote for MP candidates who promised to improve the Thai education system, while 28.47% of people who were 50 years and older said they would vote for candidates who promised to raise employment wages and salaries.

To say want better living standards means nothing. What is a "better" living? Why and what are people basing these ideas off of? There is no such thing as better living. Just cause one sees a different way of living does not means it is better or worse. The term "Better Living" comes from people who think they are better off then the rest.

Better living means road line markings, rubbish collections, and flat walkways without holes for starters, then comes social welfare, jobs, and health facility improvements.

A falang has taken management position at a rundown condo. He's turning it into 4 star. Get some Swiss in. They'll get systems running like clockwork.

Did the pollsters handout a 1000 baht to achieve the answers they wanted? Seems to work for elections.

Yes sort of right. Not those that "Think" but  those that "KNOW" whats better for everyone as a whole. Pollution issues would be an good example.

Are you saying that from a position of being "better off" then the people who participated in the survey ?

   Are you earning 9000 Baht a month, like many Thais who want a better standard of living ?

  Are you a rich guy , telling the poor people that they should be happy with what they got ?

   A Thai worker who spends all his income on basic survival , shouldnt seek more ?

Earning? Does not mean better or worse living. People equate living with money. To live does not require money. Money is what is the cause of peoples problems. Wanting more and more....

 

Rich Guy? I do not know what rich means I understand what society says it means. I am just another person in the world that is living in a world that I had no hand in "creating"


Seeking income? I think people all over does not matter Thai or not everyone is seeking money that is a learned behavior. There is no better or worse form of living there is only the illusions of what is better. A man in a jungle outside, a person with out or does not need money is not looking for "better living" He/She does not know what the word means....
