Tesco And 7-11 Enslaving Thai's To Work 9 Hour Days For 220 Baht

Recommended Posts

These workers could have listened at school, not copied from their friends, done a bit of homework from time to time.

All Thai students know the prospects. They all know the difference between leaving school at 12 and carrying on to 24. Most of the time they do not care.

In Ubon, Lotus paid 180b to college student cashiers during the last break for 10-12 hour days.

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

Well, the 2 workers I knew appreciated the job.

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

it was most certainly an american company, bought out by a Japanese corporation as your article more than clearly states

Was is the key word.

Exactly Ellis. These folk must not be given more than a fair commensurate remuneration, it will just be frittered away on card playing and lao kao . Overpaid students will just abandon their studies for a hi so lifestyle and we would never be able to get a seat in Fuji at lunchtime.

By the way ...... where has the OP troll gone?!!

Pay workers more, then pay more for goods and services. Thai stores, especially the big ones tend to have lots and lots of workers, but I don't know if they actually work. Walk through Big C and dozens of "workers" in the appliance department. Maybe they are just on commission? And of course you know if a foreign restaurant owner how many Thais you are supposed to hire. No easy solutions

Most of your replies to my topic post are the gaseous crap that form ignorant assumptions. Mostly all of you see many people standing around in the appliance or beauty department at Tesco, Big C, etc, NOT working non stop BECAUSE they dont WORK for Tesco, they are hired from various namebrands of products and actually make about 30 percent more than the shelf stocker working from 5 am until 1 pm FOR TESCO. Getting paid OT for working over 40 hours a week is non existant. Having your shift change from 8 am-6 pm one day and the next from 4 am to 1 pm is more mandatory than a Telemarketers bowel movement at MCI.

My girlfriend told me everyday 2 new people are hired and only 1 of them has the stamina and energy to work this hard for such little cash. These wealthy western corporations HAVE the profit and money to give these people higher salaries unlinke their thai counterparts of competition. The problem is that THAI people are unaware of the power of UNIONS. Me working for 2 hundred baht an hour at a government school for a lousy 4 month contract is all the work I could find at this time. The germans, french and spanish natives had the 1 year contract at the 35k a month city government school. Don't pity me, pity those who work twice as hard for an entire day as I do in 1 hour. What even more pitiful are the wages of 7-11 and Tesco Sweatshop workers in nearby countries producing products so you can save a few baht while they monopolize the world paying these slaves less than 2 thousand baht a month.

So your saying they actually only work 2 hours a day then ?

Thank God! It should read "The good thing is ..."

Having grown up in the UK during the '70s the unions are nothing but detrimental to any economy .. especially one that is emerging.

"My girlfriend told me everyday 2 new people are hired and only 1 of them has the stamina and energy to work this hard for such little cash."

That statement from the OP just doesn't make sense !!! And I doubt is even close to the truth.

Imagine after 2 weeks of hiring 1 new person a day (the other one dropping out due to exhaustion) you would have 14 new staff in addition to the original workers ....... in 1 month etc etc etc .....

You will not change the way Tesco / 7 ding dong do business in Thailand.

And I do know (really really) some 7/11 employees that are not only happy to have a job there, but also proud to be working for them.

Short term solution for the OP would be for his GF to find alternate better paying employment.

My friends have dissapeared for being animal rights activists. Heroes have short lives in Thailand.

Now to the point I made about people quitting on a regular basis, IT HAPPENS EVERYDAY and these are not the company reps standing around selling appliances in Lotus, these are the hard working clerks and shelf stockers who ARE employed by Lotus.......

Nobody here cares about workers rights? CEO's of 7-11 and Tesco make a 3 million baht per HOUR!
