This is the product of their own visa rules - they just haven't quite realized it yet ...

If you make it impossible to get a VISA and people already have financial interests - they WILL try to stay!! For those posters comparing Thailand to western countries in terms of illegal stays, you need to think about the demands that the visa regulations and the uncertainty is making on people who WOULD stay legally if they could. In UK if you’re married to a UK citizen your application is looked on far more favourable than if youre married to a Thai.

most of these will work for 300 Baht a day. Thais won't. At least not in Bangkok. Too lazy. So if thai police rounds up all these foreigners and sends them back home to Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia - who will do all the factory-/serving-/ construction-/ cleaning-work?

The thousands who are here legally no shortage to fill the gaps 300 baht a day still more than they earn at home.

Some in the North here only getting 200 baht a day.

Where is that poster they released not long ago stating there was only around 300 overstayers left? 

There were none left three months ago according to the Joker. Clearly they have been flooding back into the country in record numbers since.

Thai's - and their bosses will have to pay them a reasonable wage!

 

I hear the same in the UK where Eastern European migrants have caused the supression of wage growth and fueled the gap between the have's and the have not's - basically stalling or even reversing human development and keeping the worker bees in their place!

Has anyone noticed, that most of the law breakers being publicized are foreigners?  Are we to assume, only farangs break laws?

Yes, let's continue the exploitation of foreign workers. Maybe the construction firms and the consumers should pay more for labor and the end product. Let the market decide the true price instead of crushing, in too many cases, literally, the foreign slaves.

I believe the expats who cant meet the financial requirements to stay here should be hired to do those jobs under a new type of visa. Maby "Retire work Extension of stay".
