The police: Wowwww… the fine is 800,000 [baht]… So powerful… smoothly plows!
On the plow handle: Management of Foreign Work Act
Caption: New tool for living
[Refers to an enforcement of the Management of Foreign Work Act. In the cartoon, it raises concern that it would provide a new opportunity for the police to squeeze money, in the form of bribes, from employers who might want to violate the act.
The cartoon plays with the word “plow” which is used as a slang work to mean “squeeze” (as in “extort”).]
