One wonders how much actual work is involved in being a Minister in the Government of Thailand. Many cabinet members work two full time jobs and yet have sufficient leisure time for family and recreation. The Minister of Finance, the Minister of Commerce, and the Minister of Industry also work full time as Deputy Prime Minister. The Prime Minister himself moonlights as Defense Minister.
