Eight other Thai nationals were arrested on Monday for crossing the border illegally from Myanmar’s Tachileik city to Chiang Rai district.

 

All women, the group had worked in Myanmar and decided to return to Thailand due to the Covid-19 situation. Each paid Bt6,500 to Myanmar traffickers so as to avoid border checks.

 

On the same day, Chiang Rai authorities revealed that two Thai women who returned from Tachileik earlier had tested positive for Covid-19.

 

They added that most Thais returning from Myanmar recently had crossed the border illegally to work in entertainment venues in the neighbouring country.

 

Four more people were arrested in Chiang Rai for sneaking over the border on Sunday, after one of the group announced their planned illegal crossing on Facebook last week. None were found to be suffering fever.

What are they working in Myanmar?

 

People from there come to Thailand to work here on low wages (still better than home).

Thais going there must work even cheaper than the locals, otherwise they wouldn't get the job.

Even if they work in a special field, this must be on a very low remuneration.

webfact says they were working in the entertainment venues . Why the locals can't do this I don't know.

But it does surprise me to think Thais go there for this.

My guess would be an occupation that provides relatively high remuneration to somewhat attractive young women. Perhaps laundry or other service ?

Are Thai girls better qualified than Myanmar girls?

Or they have probably a better CV.

Don't need an Oxford degree.

Stating that Pattaya as an experience is a high bonus when applying.

Time for a change of guard at CM... this is getting embarrassing for the PM who says the borders are safe.
