Video: Caught in the act! Foreigners stealing Thai jobs on Samui say operators

Caption: Foreigners causing trouble taking Thais' jobs. Government doing nothing. Clip reveals the evidence.
 
Thai operators have taken to social media to beg the government to take action against foreigners stealing their jobs on Koh Samui.
 
They say that an increasing number of foreigners are in on the act - and now they have proof, they claim. 
 
The alleged proof comes in the form of a short video showing a Westerner returning change to a couple of foreign tourists after a trip in a pick-up on the holiday island. 
 
Thais on Samui are saying that the situation has been going on for a long time with Europeans, Chinese and Koreans in particular acting as guides and taxi services for tourists.

These jobs are reserved for Thai nationals. 
 
The head of the local public vehicle association Natthadanai Himthong - also known as Kamnan Yot - has said enough is enough.

He is fed up with his members suffering because of the illegal foreigners causing them hardship. 
 
He said that complaints to the government have been made in the past but little was done. 
 
Now the situation is getting worse and it is well overdue for the state to act, reported Manager.

Is that because they don't steal the job from Thais cleaning up the beach?

Cleaning is not a protected occupation or a much sort after job.

Looks like 100 baht, might have borrowed it and getting paid back for lunch. Weak.

Yes, my point exactly.

Have the police 'interrogated' the woman about this yet?

Not enough money to generate any interest from the BiB.

this is stupid. that ain't a business. guy could be just taxiing family and they pay a little fuel. i wasn't bothered to read on. Seems stupid and racist to me. 

Thais always winging but never do any work if given half a chance. Who's to blame?

Are these the same jobs as in pattaya where dozens of taxis just sit there will not turn on the meter, refuse to go a short distances and charge you as they were the only taxi in Pattaya?...

Perhaps the Thais could improve their services. Offer a better, safer, more efficient customer-satisfaction based service, and put them out of business that way.
