Farming the farmer

From Manager, June 25, 2013
Yaowapa Wongsawat: What? You get 12,000 baht and you complain about it. I get only 4,000-5,000 baht and I still keep quiet.
Caption: A farmer on people’s shoulder doesn’t complain about anything.

[This cartoon plays with Thai idiom ‘to farming on people’s shoulder’ meaning to profit at the expense of others. The Thai Farmers’ Association has been against the government’s plan to cut down the rice pledging scheme from 15,000 baht to 12,000 baht. The cartoonist implies that Yaowapa benefits from corruption alleged in the program.]
