the futures so bright I've got to wear shades.i see this coming before I got married and that was over 3 years ago.

i used to say...teerak ...soon Thailand will have a financial money tsunami and here it comes.

most in this government probably thought it was good to have a strong baht.....oh yes we are champions,our baht super strong,better than any money around the world.

now the ship has started to hit the fan they are left scratching their heads and it's slowly dawned on them it ain't such a good thing.

with household debt thrown in this country is in for a proper rough ride.

Where is your Teerak after the financial money tsunami ?

AS anyone who actually bothered to read the article in the link will know, that number of factory closures is about the norm each year.

I see the picture shows the number to actually be lower than 2018. How strange, for an article that is trying to ask if Thailand's subdued economic situation in 2019 will continue in 2020, suggesting that this has been a bad year. As I said, valueless article.

Yes the Daughter In-Law who is a very VERY experienced "Solderer", ... was off work for 2 weeks as her line was being ? Renovated ? Or Re Designed, so they said, like I a sure that there is a much better word for this. Maybe "Restructured" ? ... So they said, …. The first time she has had any unplanned time off in about 20 Years from my Memories ! ??? ... And my Truck driver’s assistant brother In-Law had a week off at the same time also ! ... 

 

... It is interesting when I asked her exactly what she did, ? Or what they made at her work, …   and "Tests Mother Boards" was about what she said, .... So then I asked her what she did when she tested the Mother Boards, and they were Faulty, ... Imagining a large Bin full of Faulty mother Boards !!! ..... But she answered "I fix them" ! ... Like that is why she is a solderer ! ...  And not just a Production line worker or tester I suppose ... Like I laughed and quietly thought "Well I hope that I do not ever buy something with one of her Mother Boards in it”, like one that has been re soldered by hand, to make it work !!! Har Har .... ....    And I asked her how long they were guaranteed to work for ? … Like 10 Years ? ...  And she quickly said NO ... 3 Years !!!

 

Some Thais, like the Woman mostly ? Can be pretty dedicated workers, like she has been doing this job since College ! Which was 20 Years ago at least !!!

 

.... Ayutthaya has a LOT of factories around, and well, up to date, no one who is any good, is ever out of work for very long around here. .... Either a Man and skilled, or Strong, strength still mattering in a LOT of jobs around here, .... A lot of people from around here are Builders, or Building assistants, including the women, and this always has been their main occupation outside the fishing or Rice seasons, .... Though not much rice grown around here now, like getting the water out of the Fields, has always been a bit of a problem, …. Maybe more is still grown over in Petum Thani, ....

 

And Women 18 to 35 with Good eyes ! Are all still ? In demand on the IT Production lines, .... And well the older men ... Truck Drivers assistant, ...  and the Older Women work as Cooks in the Fast food places on the highway, ...  or in the Factory Canteens. ... No one complains about their job. .... TIT on the Upside here.

Thanks for the Info, ... so looks like Women between the ages of 18 to 35 with good eyes, might not always be able to get a job on a Line around here ? ....  I wonder what the differences between the companies are ? ... Like new start ups have always seemed to be around ? ... and they are Talking about Companies moving their lines from China ? to Vietnam, and Thailand (And Vietnam still being pretty Corrupt ! ??? (I think ?) I would go for Thailand if I was their CEO ? ) ....  

 

My Grandson just got a good new Job though ? ... and he has been known to Quit regularly just recently, as he has a good new Thai Girlfriend, from Denmark to spend time with instead ! When she comes here on Holidays ! .... I will keep my Eyes out and lets just see what happens. ... Like I still do not know any one around here, that is out of work, .. who is Capable, and wants to be in to it ! ? ... 

 

(And I hope that the grandson does not walk in to a post, while he wanders around Talking to her on Skype or Line ? Just about all day !!!  ... and I wonder how many customers in a certain Thai restaurant, in Copenhagen have had Bowels of Soup tipped on them, by a Commley young Thai woman, ... doing the same thing ??? - ...   The new Generation !!! Right ?)

Yes, I was pulled into one bar bottom of Soi 7, by nice looking girl, right away with out asking the mamasan started to get her a drink, I said hold on not even talked with her yet, what is the cost of a lady's drink, she would not tell me, so asked again, and she would only tell me the full price of the bill, not just her drink, so I asked again and was told 170, for a open air beer bar, I said no, drunk my drink (just a small coke at 80 BHT) and left...

Soi 7 and 8 have always been a rip off

in most of the bars the young cutties are in the street trying to get you in, they pull you inside 

the bar and when you are in, you finish to drink alone or with the old\fat\ugly who was in ambush

in the shadow and your young cuttie is already back to fish the next customer in the street.

I am surprised that is lasted so long but now this 2 streets are almost dead.

I think its just pure financial, for those who have worked for over 5 years laying off costs are high, also they are already very well skilled and could multitask.

 

Those under 5 years are cheaper to lay off and posses less skills

 

Not different to any other business, some hotels/shops/restaurants/bars close down and some are looking for staff

 

I think with multinationals its about waiting out the dead period with minimal losses where as for smaller, privately owned its different, either do well or shut the doors

Yes there is a huge difference between 130 Baht and 140 Baht. Especially when it's well known that all bars in Thailand can fix there own price.

10 baht is 26 pence in Sterling.

 

The bottle holds half a pint.

 

So that's a 52 pence increase on the price of a pint.

 

Any pub where I come from that puts its already over priced beer prices up by over half a quid a pint in one hit would see its customers running for the door.

 

No one would stand for such a rip off regardless of however well known it is that all bars in Thailand or anywhere else can fix there own prices.

In the UK you can have no work or income, and still be classified as being in employment (over a given time). Zero hours contracts.

 

Also, working for one hour a week counts as full employment.

 

It's how the governing Tory party can lie about having "full employment".

There are 8.7 million people of working age (16 - 65) in the UK who are classed as economically inactive.

 

They are not included in the unemployment statistics. However we don't get to hear much about them. As they are nearly all drawing some sort of benefit and not paying any income tax they are bound to be a drain on Britain's economy.

 

Any change of government would be unlikely to be able to do anything about that

 

Thailand does not have this problem but it's now common throughout the Western world.

So much for the government's recent bravado about an increase in company registrations.
