So many nuances to this topic it's hard to now where to start.

 

The 'entertainment' industry is integral to the whole attraction of Thailand to many who visit, anyone who deny's that fact is basically an idiot.

 

In general from the bar girl to the teacher, Thai's never plan for the future, beyond next week, so lets not castigate the bar girl for not having a rainy day fund, thats endemic across most of Thai society.

 

My wife yesterday ended up sending a couple of hundred bucks to some cousin or other who was high tailing it out of Pattaya to weather out the storm.

 

One thing you have to admire about Thai's, is that they will help out family in a crisis, regardless of their own stupidity for not being prepared, and this for most of the globe is a crisis.

I think the reason that they do not qualify is that the Owners of the establishments they work in do not pay into the social security system or pay employment taxes to the government.  Then the ladies themselves do not pay into the tax system in order to file a tax return and therefore are not seen as truly employed.  It is an under the table world they live in with backhanders given as protection to those in power by the owners to keep them running and not getting shut down for what is deemed illegal activity by some.

Yes you get it

most of the girls don't have any work contract with the bar

in fact regarding the hours they have to do and the salary they receive

from the bar they are well under the minimum Thai wage 

(They work usualy 12 hours\day for 5000\7000 a month with only 3 days of ''holidays'')

So they need to have a lot of lady drink, short times and long times to do a decent wage

also a lot of them don't have any health cover, if they are sick they have to pay for themselves if they can. If they can not work their salary is cuted

Basicaly all the system exploit the girls, they are mostly uneducated and unaware of their rights then it's easy for the bosses at all the levels to do money on the girl's a>>

no way you were born as poor as those in Thailand, in the west you get benefits, council houses, all sorts of things that stop you being poor

 

I was born poor. My parents both have phd and made 200 German marks (before Euros) a month.

 

Then the civil war hit me and I was even more poor.

 

Yet, very few women prostitute themselves in my country. 

 

Bye with your stupid thread.

they need to do house calls and food delivery, do door to door bangs during the day and then at night offer more with every pepperoni pizza.

They could easily rake in 20k a month doing that.

too much hard work for them

Heartless wretches,  my Buddah it's support your favorite bar girl week. A little hand out goes a long way right now. Go walk around and share or buy a meal with them , hand out a few baht afterward or are you afraid ?

A few guys on this thread who seem to have been burned by girls hence the negativity. It wasn't the beaches and temples that made Thailand very popular

 

Nah, more likely you married a bargirl, shelling out about 100k a month for extended family  and now think that everyone should be a fool and support them.

 

Newsflash!

 

A friend of my wife was put on temporary leave due to a virus. She used to make close to 100k a month working at car dealership, but now she is only getting 10 thousand while on temporary leave. Not enough for her so she started delivering food and parcels during the day. She makes 1k-2k a day, but she works 7 days a week. 

 

So there is always a demand for something.

Not true at all, born poor, just be thankful you weren't

.... there are billions of people on this planet born poor; and only a very small minority of them lower themselves to bar-girl "work". The real problem is that most of them are emotionally troubled due to family attitudinal problems.

Alas my girl who owns her own salon and is from Myanmar, pays taxes for her employees and they were able to collect, but she could not as she is not Thai.  However, she pays into the system herself and files her taxes every year.  So I can see, once again what this was about and unfortunately it is about politics in general.

Provided she had filed for a minimum no. of years. Has she been a resident for many years? Thailand has far less resources to give because it is a relatively poor country.

This thread isn't about guys sponsoring girls, it's about girls not having money to eat let alone feed family and the govt should help

And these girls generally have 2-3 more income than most thais

Don't forget, usually they have to feed 2 parents, 2 children and 3 brothers.

She has lived here for 20 years, and has only owned her business and payed taxes for the past 2 years.  prior to that she worked for another salon that never paid her taxes nor di she.  I put her on the right path.  However, its not enough as she still has to jump through the hoops like all of us expats do....

What a post! Since when are prostitutes entitled to sign up for the SS?

You can't just sign up for it. 

 

  Then the employer would have to pay the same amount.  

 

  How can they file a tax return for work that';s basically illegal? 

 

  Without bargils, the country wouldn't be as developed as it is right now.

 

But does the government know that?

 

  

 

    Without the bar girls ,  many expats  would not have settled in Thailand .

    Bought land , houses , cars, motor bikes etc..

   Without bar girls, the country wouldn't be as developed as it is right now, sure.

The goverment must know that, but won't admit it ..
