Recently the Labor and Social Security Office of the Tibet Autonomous Region issued an initial 1.19 million yuan in unemployment relief for those who were left temporarily unemployed after the 3.14 Tibet riots. Only city residents are eligible to receive unemployment benefits.

The tourism industry was directly affected by the 3.14 incident in Lhasa. As a result, the first batch of unemployment assistance is targeted to five state-owned tourism enterprises.

The Tibet Autonomous Region party committee and government provided compensation to those who used to work in hotels, tourism agencies, and restaurants, to guarantee their basic livelihood during the temporary unemployment period. In accordance with regulations, those who have unemployment insurance will receive up to 480 yuan per month. However, other victims who do not have unemployment insurance will also get 420 yuan per person per month according to Tibet's unemployment relief standards. It is expected that the relief will be provided for one year in Lhasa city and six months in other counties and cities in Tibet.
