Stop foreigners taking our jobs - hairdressers march on the town hall to present protest letter

A group of north eastern barbers and hairdressers are demanding that their profession is not opened up to foreigners. 

 

They alone want the right to snip and beautify the Thai people and don't want any "neighbors" muscling in on the action.

 

This term usually refers to people from Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar. 

 

President of the Sakon Nakhon barbers and salon operators association Janthipha Khwanwatana presented a letter to governor Withaya Janchalong saying he should oppose government plans to open the trade up to foreigners.

 

Janthipha accepted that the government has not made its mind up yet but she and her members believed it was a done deal.

 

She said that it is hard enough to get customers as it is and if the foreigners are given the right her members will be in dire straits. 

 

She demanded that hairdressing remain a Thai only job and suggested that other occupations be opened up to Thailand's neighbors.

At least they stick up for their jobs, not like the other half of the world where it doesn't matter if your a Citizen

In a country that is usually reluctant to "open" any jobs for foreigners, I would guess that the government discovered that there was a shortage of hairdressers hence the need to get foreigb help. ?

 

I'm sure Janthipha Khwanwatana has looked at the big picture. ?

Seems totally fair., And they need to enforce not allowing the Thaiyai to sell food at markets under their own booth. Just ain’t right

OK, I know it is late, and, yes I am old, but I have no idea what this means?

Their system seems to be letting them down in comparison with the other half of the world. 

Competition is ultimately good for them (if they compete), but we can't expect a bunch of "hair dressers" to know that.

If 1) the Thai hairdressers turned OFF their TVs when they're cutting my hair and 2) cut it to a consistant standard, I'd always go back to the same hairdresser. 

They stop mid way through the cut to gawk at the telly and still expect me (us) to go back to them?!?!

Open the martket I say! 

It might actually improve the standards and the work ethics here.

I know about a farang hair dresser in Bangkok , he takes care of all the hi-so ladies. Very exclusive for the rich and famous. He should be worried now.

The Thais expect to have a monopoly on everything Thailand, yet they expect to be given equal rights when or if they travel or decide to live in another country.

 

They want the benefits of being part of the Asean community, it`s motto being; one identify, one community, and still want other members of that community to be third class subjects in Thailand. some one should inform the Thais, that they can`t always have their cake and eat it.

You can't walk 10 yards in Bangkok without being offered an illegal hairdo. The industry must be on it's knees. <deleted>
