Guess we'll never know if this guy gets a prison sentence or just grovels and gets his cheque book out. 

A guy who goes to a meeting with a 10" blade to ask for a payrise clearly won't have enough money for anything.

Just doesn't add up, but it figures. When your numbers up, your numbers up. To bad they couldn't work out the division between them, could have been done in a fraction of the time he'll spend in jail.

    So, his point wasnt based on any actual facts ?

His point was that the Director was being greedy in not giving a pay rise ?

That point is also not based on any facts , just a wild assumption 

 

I guess you've never had the pleasure of working at a Thai government school and seeing how the directors live, compared to any of the lower or mid-level teachers.  Do you know starting salaries for entry-level teachers are just over minimum wage?  Take off the rose-colored glasses Captain Thailand.

I havent worked in a Thai school .

Directors do usually earn more than teachers , starting salaries are usually quite low as well .

But no one knows how much the teacher was earning or how much more he wanted . 

No one knows how much the director earned or how much profit his school made .

Its unfair to label the director as being greedy , with nothing to back this up .

Maybe the teacher was being greedy in asking for a higher salary that he was worth ?

If the teacher was worth more than his salary, he could go to work in another school that would pay him his worth

It is more than possible that he was being paid what he was worth already.   But of course, as another poster pointed out, we will never know.  These stories only appear in Thai Visa for shock value and possibly for the same reason the original story only appears in the original  source it was published  in, for exactly the same reason.  We never know the reason why we never hear any more.

There is something wrong with this story. The way I understand is teacher have to apply to the  Ministry for an increase in salary it has very little to do with the Director. Teachers are paid by the Ministry and it is a very complicated process to get an increase.

Maybe there was another reason all together for there argument.

The whole thing just doesn't add-up.

Couldn't have been much of a Maths Teacher if he didn't calculate on being subtracted from the School Community and 

Added to the Prison Population for his trouble but at any rate, the Director got the point.

This story would make more sense if the "pay rise" was referring to off-the-books income of some sort rather than the maths teacher's official salary.

 

Either way the whole affair points to prior events failing to be handled properly and is indicative of the "iron rice bowl" status of govt. teachers here. Once in, they are almost impossible to turf out, no matter how unsuitable for the role.

He was making the director an offer that he thought could not be refused
