    Without meeting 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 ..

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. 

 

 

Was that 100k fixes salary or commission based ?

If it was fixed salary she should be getting 75% under the Labour Protection Act.

Those girls never pay any tax but earn more than enough yearly to do pay them. They would laugh if you tell them to do so. Most not even bother to vote.
Now they want the 5K while not being employed officially. Do we really have to care? They should have some buffer easily, not even a month passed.

I am sure they can earn more than 5K if they finally get back to normal prices of 1K instead of 3K, even during Corona there will be takers.

Obviously commission based, anything is in TH with such jobs. Even in HomePro and shopping malls.

Life is touGH for the poorly educated that is a fact and selling sex well it's an easy road to easy money.....a hell of a lot easier than farm work which pays 300 baht a day!  But, to make so much money,  as the cute ones do,  and not save a little is silly to the extreme.  Coming from a poor background you would think they would know to save for a rainy day.

You can try to sell your body to 50 - 60 - 70 years old ladys in every form and mental state. Drunk, smelly, I guess you get it if you just think about it! Same jokes every day, 

 

I could not, but they do, and I find it quite arrogant and ignorant to state it is an easy way out.

Hi everyone, I read the Pattaya One article and wondered if it's really true - the lady said "Yet our kind of work means that we have zero chance of any income during this time." surely the girls have other ways to find customers like social media - does anyone know how they are doing it? My guess is they are using Facebook or Line. I know the Chinese app We Chat has a feature where you can find people nearby, but not sure about other apps.

Agreed, she'll have a base salary and then commission on top. Another thing I've noticed many Thais do is just quote their highest ever month and say that's their income. Like if a lady had a good month and made 100k, she'd tell people that's her salary - it wouldn't matter if she only made that much once. She wouldn't do anything complex like calculate the average or anything like that.

These girls need help from the Government - anyone here who looks down on them really have no idea how Thailand works

One might hope that Pattaya's bar girls might have squirreled away a few baht. The real tragedy is these girls, working all over the county, for enough money for dinner!

It tends to be the exact opposite to what you say...

People living day to day on minimum wage don't have the luxury of saving for a rainy day !!

So that is how these girls have been raised and they don't know the concept of saving, even though some earn a good wage now...

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

Can see your point,however the sex industry in pattaya was in decline before corona struck,kak exchange rate,girls wanting silly money,let's hope things will get better soon,and this might be the kick up the <del pattaya needs.

Maybe they should have saved some of that money the numerous sponsors were sending them, or from the 3/4k short times or from the 150 BAHT drinks...rather than blowing it on fast food,flash phones and making out they are some thing they are not....sorry don't get any sympathy from me.....15 years go maybe 

Not sure I've been to a bar in the last 3 years where a girly drink was only 150baht? But back on point I'm sure they only get something small like 30baht from them..
