Retirement. Not Just Yet
Urbanization and migration have changed the patterns of living. For the past few years, locals and migrant workers have not seen any marked improvements. To them, like others in the informal work sector, the declining economy leaves a negative impact on their lives and dependents.
Migrant workers and refugees often work long hours. Many send money to their families in Myanmar. Often its just not enough.
