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

Recommended Posts

The indigenous snippers could do with some competition to drive up standards. I don't think I've had a decent salon haircut since arriving here two decades ago.

 

In the end I gave up and bought my missus the tools of the trade. Her efforts may not be up to Mr Teasy-Weasy standard, but we've saved a small fortune over the years - and I still have both ears!

   In the UK hairdressers/barbers are greedy holes and expect a tip.  

So Thais  are not greedy holes, and never expect a tip ?, Wise up.   btw this is not a UK forum.

I live in Sakon and it is a great little city in Isan with coffee shops, restaurants, and plenty of little local places to relax and visit with the kids, but getting a good haircut here is really difficult.

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. 

It seems you find the cheapest hair salon where you stay there are meny good salons

What makes you think they're cheap? I didn't talk about prices. Are you thinking about cheap salons because that's where you go?

They are right, but also other countries should also reserve jobs for their own citizens in the same fashion. Fair is fair after all !

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. 

Please can you show some PROOF that competition is good for them? They want to keep their jobs and not have immigrants swamping them - 86% of new jobs in the uK have been taken by first and second generation immigrants the difference is WERE TOLD were racist if we oppose it and want to work!! ANY NATIONS GOVERNMENT should have its own people as the priority!! - But we cant expect a bunch of TV snowflakes to agree with that!!

Good question. Legally speaking yes, it is covered in the AEC2015 "free movement of people within ASEAN". The issue here though is that certain professions (i.e. ice carving, hair dressing, architecture, tour guiding) are for Thai people only. It is an old decree though and might need to be reviewed/kicked out.

Point is, if "alien" can cut hair to the extend that the locals demonstrate it is either an orchestrated show - or - the alien is doing something better, cheaper, faster, cleaner, air-conditioned, offroad parking, what-ever. 

I believe in free market mechanisms and that includes hair dressing as a profession.  

Pesky indians wouldn’t let me open a corner shop in Bombay last year - told me it was for Indians only to be doing like that!!
