He urged the agency to check disadvantaged workers nationwide and Dak Lak in particular to offer timely assistance for them, ensuring they will have a happy traditional Lunar New Year (Tet).

The PM also requested the confederation to develop social houses for workers and kindergartens for their children, thus sharing their difficulties.
