Barking mad: Workers in Buri Ram complain of being detained by kennel owner

By The Nation

Police were called on Sunday (December 22) to a kennel in Buri Ram’s Ban Kruat district to investigate a claim by a worker that the staff were being kept captive by the owner of a shelter called “The Sound of Animals” 

 

When the officers arrived, they found 15 workers arguing with owner Michael  and his wife Tanyanun.

Savoey, 41, who is employed by the kennels told police that the shelter has a staff of 15 looking after the dogs and that between them they take care of 15 to 20 canines, feeding, bathing and exercising them for a monthly salary of Bt10,000. While they are satisfied with the salary, they have to put up with Chour’s frequent angry outbursts.

 

“It’s getting harder and everyone is bitten often but Michael will not let the workers go to the hospital until their shifts are finished at 6.30pm and they have to pay for the treatment themselves,” she claimed.

She went to the police after the owner ordered the staff into the kennel and refused to let them leave as a punishment for talking outside. Because the only water was outside, they became dehydrated, 

 

Tanyanun admitted that her husband had a quick temper but said the workers must do the jobs for which they are paid. “If the dogs don’t get enough care, he gets mad,” she said. “But the claim that they were detained is untrue. The doors weren’t locked so they could have gone out anytime they wanted.”

Not excusing what this guy did, if it's in fact true.

However, Thailand, Cambodia etc aren't really renowned as havens of workers-rights, slavery on fishing boats etc, exploitation.

If its that bad they can quit anytime , they're not being forced to work their and pretty much mostly only have one dog to take care of so not exactly overworked are they .

 

I can only imagine how much time they spend sitting around talking/smoking like most Thai workers you see everywhere around the country .

Or, I know it sounds crazy, how about just treating them with some respect and not making them wait till the end of their shift to go to a hospital if they have been bitten - crazy I know.... or we could just ignore them cos Mr Barstool says Thais are lazy
