It is 325 baht a day, but many places are having a hard time to find staff working for under 400 baht a day, they want commissions and bonus etc also...

 

you can find for 325 baht a day but usually youngsters.

Nah - it's 300 - the additional 10-30 baht hike AFAIK didn't go thru the cabinet to anywhere, because the already imposed 50% hike from 200 to 300 baht made a huge dent to investments

Ok then the media have misguided me, but anyway, hope next time it is another hike 300 to 450babt, I doubt stuff will be more expensive, just a baht or two.

 

but many street vendors work only 3-4 hours, they sell to they are empyyy and make a good amount of money, I remember a Somtam lady dressed herself poor, but had a nice house and cars and children in the university, maybe the dressing is for feel sorry for them, I don’t know.

 

but hey, let’s say you have a master degree is the minimum wage still 300baht a day?

Minimum wage is minimum wage - so yes you can pay the masters' 300thb/day as you can for uneducated cream of the crop - up to you - or then you can opt for the illegals for bit cheaper - also up to you ^^

99.9% posts negative....have you actually counted them? I doubt it. And I wouldn't say these posters are 'negative' because to me they seem more like concerned over the man's future. That is hardly negative. Strange that you are being negative towards other forum members, Ha!

Your not the police, what concern of yours matters?

 

The man is 70 years old and obviously appears to be doing quite well.

 

Nothing to be concerned about.

Hi mate, I am afraid to say you would very likely be in trouble with the authority for doing this.

What legal facts do you base that statement on since you have no clue what his status is?

Its not jealousy , negativity etc, its being realistic. There is a history of people getting fined for doing this sort of work, manual labour is a Thai only occupation and many have been arrested and fined for similar.

Nobody wants him to be fined, we are not hoping he gets fined, most are just pointing out that he will most likely be fined. As many before him have been fined.

There have been cases on Thaivisa where a guy got fined for hanging some pictures in his wifes restaurant, a guy got fined for helping to unload the delivery truck at wifes bar, sweeping the floor in resturant and cleaning up etc.  All without broadcasting it on national television.

 

Not bitter towards the guy just pointing out the reality of his situation.

Most farang's have no clue what Thai authorities will or will not do because none of you work with them.

 

So any comments based on anything less than fact are just pure speculation.

 

There is no reality of the situation as you see it.

 

The reality is right at this second he is making more money than most of the posters and that is very upsetting to many.

 

If or when something happens, then you have something to comment on 

 

If you are so good at speculating the future, try the lottery or the stock market

 

Better returns than worrying about this old grandpa

the business must have 7 thais working there before they can employ a farlang and he still will need a work permit , it does not look like he has got 7 thais working there ONLY HIM ! so he is breaking the law shame on him !

The article mentioned he hires local school kids to work for 300 baht a day

 

So learn how to read (shame on you) before trying to be an expert analyzing one photo

Well if he can work in the open washing cars , I can work from my laptop as a digital nomad from here without people asking any questions. 

 

Maybe Big Joke already on his way.

Nothing stopping you doing the DN thru local (or your very own for that matter) company currently, having WP and Non-B visa. If you want to avert costs imposed for business, and go to the gray area go ahead too - not many DN's ever actually prosecuted, though some bounced off the borders on suspicion of working in the Kingdom, whilst some co-working space people busted and later released when found not to be working *for* the co-working space. Ah the technicalities 🙂
