- One of the challenges people are facing nowadays is unemployment
- With the imposition of lockdowns and travel bans worldwide, various airline workers have lost their jobs
- Among them is a 36-year-old pilot in Thailand who now works as a delivery rider
- The former pilot also shared a few words about his current condition as a rider amid the pandemic
As the number of infected COVID-19 patients rise around the globe, various governments have placed their countries on lockdowns to prevent the spread of the virus.
Furthermore, aside from the pandemic, one of the biggest threats and issues people face nowadays is unemployment.
KAMI learned that the story of an airport staff worker in Thailand has recently made headlines after he decided to work as a delivery rider.
Kritee Youngfuengmont, a 36-year old pilot, used to fly commercial jets which earned him a good amount of money.
However, the imposition of travel bans and restrictions across the globe eventually led to the loss of his job.
With bills to pay and a family to feed, the 36-year old pilot has decided to work as a food delivery rider amid the pandemic.
Fortunately for Youngfuengmont, many people have resorted to food deliveries due to the lockdown brought about by COVID-19.
Despite the fact that his new job is far from being glamorous like his previous job, Youngfuengmont continues his work as a rider to keep him and his family going.
According to the report written by The Star, the 36-year old pilot shared a couple of words to the people about his current condition, “Life is unpredictable. The unexpected can happen anytime. You could be enjoying good times and all of a sudden, you’re falling apart.
“When that happens, you have to figure out if you are going to give up, or fight and find something to hold on to while you figure a way out.”
It can be worth noting that in late March, Thailand began to slash airline services and salaries due to coronavirus.
As reported earlier by KAMI, a couple who argued with a security guard at a local supermarket has buzzed the online community. In the video, the couple could be heard wanting to enter the supermarket without providing a quarantine pass.
