Manager reported on the first phase of a crackdown on illegal migrants that started in July of last year. 

 

More than 5,000 migrants from Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar have been deported with hundreds more being sent home for stealing jobs reserved exclusively for Thais. 

 

Around 28 million baht in fines have been paid. 

 

Gen Adul "Big Oo" Sangsingkeo, chief at the Ministry of Labour was giving figures based on the crackdown from the start of last July to February 25th this year. 

 

Employers in 13,904 places had been checked with 906 cases of wrongdoing uncovered. These had resulted in 8.3 million baht in fines.

 

Around a quarter of a million migrants had been checked resulting in 5,129 prosecutions and 5,012 deportations and 16.8 million baht in fines being levied. 

 

Regarding workers taking Thai jobs 2,538 people had been checked out resulting in 702 prosecutions and 649 deportations and 2.8 million baht in fines. 

 

Jobs reserved for Thais that the migrants were found to be taking included selling goods, moving around from place to place selling items and acting as guides.

Maybe they should target South Asians, in particular Indians and Bangladeshis. Seems to be hundreds of them working in stalls and shops and touting tailor shops and other nefarious businesses in tourist areas, especially in Pattaya. 

 

How do they obtain work permits for this kind of work?

 

It's visibly bad now whereas even just ten years ago they were restricted to selling nuts or touting poorly made suits to new arrivals.

I can't believe that someone who has been so long on the forum is so ignorant. Many of these guys are Thais and born here. This has been explained quite a few time on the forum. 

 

Sure there are a few that are NOT legal but the majority are legal as they are Thai. This topic has come up again and again. People talking about the Indians in MBK ect. 

 

Yes I forgot any skin not white makes it look bad.. while it was a white drunk Brit causing carnage in Pattaya only yesterday. I prefer looking at Indians then having guys like that Brit in Thailand.

Which begs the question if these jobs are so valuable, why are Thais not doing them. 

 

Only things of value are worth stealing, right?

So in the the next 15 years when Thailand becomes a super aged society will they then beg them to come back ??
But of course these things happen when people in charge can’t think any further than tomorrow.

Does every Thai military / police bureaucrat bigshot now come with their own "Big XXXXXX" nickname?

 

It seems to be a rather disturbing trend!!!   :w00t:

Apparently they are all Thais though, LMFAO.

I know I'd feel much better if the guys perpetually hawking fake watches to every passerby on my soi in BKK were real Thais instead of the Indian / Bangladeshi variety!!!  :tongue:

I have an excellent, well paying job with good benefits that allows me to monitor my other Thai based businesses at the same time. 

 

Why would you not want to work here if you wanted to stay here?

Because I don’t need too 😋

Never have understood just why a western person would WANT to work in Thailand. 

I've been working in Thailand for over 10 years and enjoyed every second of it. Admittedly the salary by western standards is way lower, but the hours I do would be classed as part-time in the UK. I chose to live in Thailand, so why not work? Some jobs in Thailand require Westerners therefore you are not taking that work from a Thai.
