Why is there not one monk helping out, or are they exempt from physical labour.

The monks in Thailand could well learn from the monks in different European countries.  None go out begging for food on any day.  Many monasteries are self-sufficient, or nearly so as they grow much of their own food, and a few are well known for producing wine, beer, and/or liqueurs which are sold and are famous around the world.  Thai monks could do with a good shake-up as most seem to be in it for doing nothing, although that will never happen as long as people keep providing them with the essentials, like they do the soi dogs.  Good examples to comp[are them with are the monks, etc., in places like India where they provide food on a daily basis for themselves and sometimes hundreds of people every day at no cost.  Could go on but you get the gist of my meaning and it has all been said before.

They are not begging.  I've never seen a Thai monk begging.  Any "monk" who is begging is a charlatan; few that there are, they exist.   As I understand it, the early morning walk with alms bowls gives the community the opportunity to make merit and receive a blessing.  Everybody wins.
