Netizens in Thailand reacted in large numbers to a post about two people having to part due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

 

There were tears and hugs as a pick-up was loaded with personal possessions and one of the ladies was set to return home to Buriram. 

 

It appeared on a Facebook fan page and appeared to be workers parting.

 

Daily News said in a commentary that the pandemic has caused damage to health, the economy and tourism. There have been widespread redundancies and business closures. 

 

The pictures on Facebook encapsulated the human economic tragedy.

 

The media said that workers were being laid off by companies throughout Thailand. 

 

Elsewhere the worst unemployment figures in 20 years were reported.

I am still totally amazed how much Thai ruk Thai!

Especially the government, giving financial handouts left and right, to help their fellow men/ women, who got into deep doo doo, by no fault of their own...:coffee1:

Meantime, with the brains of a peanut between them my two staff have left with no notice at this  time when many can't  find work.

The man was a  good  worker the women started off well but then started taking longer and longer breaks, Wife mentioned the 4.5  hour  lunch breaks to her in a very gentle Thai way 3  days  ago, the next day they left.

Id  just spent 4 months  building them a brand  new  house and we'd  finished it a  week before they'd  left.

They arrived with not a penny between them 22  months  ago, but as Ive seen before, no discussion just up and  go, slightest  offence and theyr'e  off.

The  saddest part was their 9 year old  girl who we always had a good laugh with, bought her a bicycle and  a pet hamster, she wanted to take the hamster but the stupid easily  offended man said she could  not bring it.

Our  local Policeman told us they'd  worked for a German before and  the man  drank too  much and they were sacked from there.

He  drank here too hiding the bottles in a neighbours  plot  of  land which I found, I had no problems with his drinking  and told  him so as it didn't  affect his  work, i did  tell him to not throw his  old  bottles  in the neighbours  land though.

Anyway, theyv'e  gone and if they get another  job  who  knows, I get  tired of "babysitting"  staff  here, they all follow the same modus  operandi, often start well then slowly get worse until they do almost  nothing, then when mentioned off they go    like immature children.

Doesn't  mattter  what you pay them, how well you treat  them they just don't  care, short sighted to say the least.

 

Same here with thai staff. U tell them off next day they quit.

Which proves the knock-on affect of this whole debacle isn't over yet by a long way.... wait to see how many bars/clubs/entertainment venues go bust before tourists arrive back to save the day !
