Tesco and 7-11 are no different from any Thai company and they might even be better than some.

Isn't Tesco a British company & isn't 7-11 an American company ?

Chinese and Japanese respectively

Tesco is a UK based company and Tesco Lotus is their Thai based business - are you talking about share ownership of the Tesco Lotus property fund IPO?

7-Eleven is not an American company it is Japanese. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7-Eleven

7-Eleven Thailand is owned 100% by CP ltd. http://www.7eleven.co.th/index_0812.html

Poor Thai people working in 7/11 or Tesco's etc, have to go to work on motorbike. Unlike in the west where they arrive in their brand new BMWs.

What's the minimum wage in your home countries, then add to that the cost of living.

At least here there are jobs, last time I was back in OZ, A supermarket chain advertised for some shelf stacker's. 2000 applicants for 10 jobs.

The money may seem small, but they can live. Jim

Which tesco's in the west do you shop at ??

I have never seen anyone who stocks shelves turning up to work in brand new BMWs

It was meant to be a sarcastic remark. Jim

Lower wages mean lower prices; please don't spoil things

Yes very good point.

I am happy with the prices I pay so I think the wages should stay the same.

Much factual truth here Swissie; "they seem to be perfectly happy" brought me up a bit though. It could be argued that they are comotose because they have no prospects. Would we all have been better off staying in the cave and not trying to better our outlook?

No prospects: Yes, a Thai man or a Thai woman at the age of 50 have no prospects (No proper schooling, etc.) If you will, they are chained to the hammock.

But the young ones, better educated, can give it a try in Bangkok for example. Or give it a try in a tourist-hub.

The more I am astonished, how many of them return to the "Hammock-Life" here after a couple of months. The usual comment: I no like !

Must add that it's not a "poor region" where I live in Thailand. Actually, they are quite "affluent". (Every family seems to have at least one "uncle" that runs some sort of business, that allows them not having to wander off the hammock too far.)

But things might be a bit different in the Isaan. Don't know.

Cheers.

PS: If we can't stop the plundering of this planet and it's resources, future genereations will probably live in caves again and the question will arise: Why did we leave the caves in the first place. cheesy.gif

That's great. Imagine having them sit around at home all day playing on-line games. rolleyes.gif
