Work permit price increases

When will the new fees for work permit extensions come into effect? And could someone explain what a “2nd-class work permit” is, as mentioned in the Bangkok Post recently?

The proposed price increases have not yet gone through the entire parliamentary approval process, so no date has been set for them to take effect. As for the reference to a “2nd-class work permit”, work permits have never been divided into classes.
