Taipei Times: 2020 Elections: Lai courts farmers and fishery workers

“I know the people here in Jinshan and Wanli — they are mostly farmers, fishery workers and laborers… There is the need here to improve public infrastructure, and for better programs to look after low-income workers, the elderly and young families raising children,” he said.

When presenting the DPP’s platform, Lai said that if President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) wins a second term in office, the government would introduce a retirement pension program for farmers and fishery workers, “so that they can receive monthly pension money upon retirement, which they should be entitled to — just like industrial workers, civil servants and public school teachers.”

Lai also asked people support DPP legislative candidate Lai Pin-yu (賴品妤), a political activist and a well-known cosplayer.

In the past, she was more associated with the New Power Party, and was among those who stormed and occupied the legislature from March 18 to April 10, 2014, as part of the Sunflower movement.
