Around 25% to 35% from what you might expect in Luxembourg, but the living costs are lower. Gresat place to survive, but the money won't make you rich if that's what you want.

Pilots make 100 baht a day.

Engineers, 1000 a month

Heart Surgeons 50 baht an hour and first right of refusal

As for your second question - one average man earns 3000 baht a year. One above average man earns half of that.

It depends on how well you can negotiate. Look up minimum wage in the various areas of Thailand on the websites. The go to employment sites and see what they are offering. It is just like any country in the world it depends on experience level, education, speical skills, college grad engineer versus a licensed engineer. Can you ask a broader question next time?

What is the average salary in Thailand for:

First point - the official minimum wage changes from province to province.

Sales what?

Sales rep for a grog company or in a car sales showroom - nice salary and very big commissions, as much as 150,000Baht a month for the few super earners.

Sales person in a supermarket (trying to get your kids to try drinks loaded with sugar) - 200Baht a day.

Nurse, what type: doing the normal duties in a ward in a hospital, or the nurse who assists a heart surgeon.

Engineers, what type, many experienced labourers are given the title engineer, on the other hand there are engineers in complex state of the art oil refineries.

Manger of what, and how many people is he/she supervising, and are the outputs of the job critical to the achievement of business goals?

--------

There are two jobs which have surprisingly low salaries: teachers and police. My daughter in law is a fully qualified teacher, been working about 3 years, she gets 6,700 a month and the pay rises are very minimal in the future, but she wants to stay in the job for the long-term pension benefits.

This is always a very emotive subject on TV as the English teachers find out that the average Thai person earns more than they do.

Our Thai engineers earn as follows;

Electrical Project Engineer - 95k per/mth

Mech Project Engineer - 65k per/mth

Site Engineer (mech & Elect) - (8) average 40k per/mth

Supervisers (headmen) 20 - 30k per/mth

All speak English.

Thai professional engineers if they speak English (well enough to converse to expat managers on technical matters) can demand top salaries.

For the same engineers if they don't speak English, they can expext half this amount.

It is very difficult to find Thai proffessionals that can converse in English at managerial levels.

What am I missing here? Should I be laughing or what? Sorry, I don't get it. Maybe ten pints will help.

Teachers start out at about 7000-8000B/month, a very common figure for recent grads in Thailand. There are plenty of people making less. I know of moo gatas that pay hilltribe workers about 3k/month.

See your point.

But there is something called average industrial worker salary.

Some kind of standard used internationally to determine a country's wealth.

One thing to bear in mind is that many Thai companies are paternalistic and cover quite a few expenses. Often the manager will buys lunch for the staff, nights out paid for by the company, interest free loans, help with hospital bills, mobile phone bills paid, gasoline paid etc. So salary is not the entire compensation.

Then don't forget that a skimming, pilfering and "commissions" is widespread, and to a surprising extent tolerated.

It is also relative to which area it may be. Salaries far north can be around 4000 b a month for say hotel staff.

What would a graduate engineer (hydrolic) make, who is a Department Chief in a Thai governmet agency? With 20 years experience.

Between 60-100k on paper. In reality? The sky is the limit depending on "connections"
