Incomes: bar work vs conventional?

Recommended Posts

Serious friend of mine discussing Thailand asked me about comparative incomes. Question is whether the bar girls are being exploited. (Most of us will laugh at that idea: who's exploiting whom?) I don't have recent stats. Say

 

To compare for example:

 

public high school teacher

beginning public uni instructor

entry level nurse

accounting clerk, BA degree

7/11 cashier

Big C cashier

front desk clerk, small/medium hotel

server in resto chain like Fuji

 

I looked online but ran into paywalls for the latest info. No doubt it's out there if I dig more but maybe our members know offhand or have a link to a nice table. This one's not bad but seems out of date:

 

http://www.worldsalaries.org/thailand.shtml

 

We had one thread about salaries in BKK that might be useful:

 

 

It seems the subject of bar girl income hasn't been considered since 2003:

 

 

So then what's the latest on the average bar girl income, you dawgs you? The average go-dancer income? (Both including average rate of client appts and money sent from abroad) 'Course you might throw in any stats you may have about the low/high end as well. Have at it!

A successful bargirl, i.e. one who gets lots of ladydrinks and barfines, can easily make 100,000 a month.

At 1st glance I laughed when I read your comment. However when doing the maths, its possible. One needs to add that only a very few girls, with discipline and high motivation, would be able to do it. She needs to be in the looksdepartment too.

 

The deceitful ones would probably be able to make between 150 and 200k a month with various ignorant sponsors abroad. Who do not know the game and each other ofcourse.

Be careful not to get into specifics, or thread will probably be locked due to forum rules.

 

Probably not a valid comparison, as most bargirls will have unacknowledged income.

 

In my experience, most bargirls will not make a great deal of money as I doubt many get taken out more than a few days a month, if that. In Chiang Mai, I reckon most are making sod all at the present time, other than wages.

When I used to hang out on Nana way back, in one bar I frequented a very attractive lady used to leave and return a couple times most nights I was there.

It's the same as in the "normal life"

 

The high achievers / hottests chicks make fortune

 

The low to average make accordingly on how much crap then can take... ie drunk, vulgar, 70y old supermans

 

As per many reports the hot ones say that they only go with Japanese or Koreans... 3 inches for 3 minutes and 5000+ thb

Very rare I would think. Definitely not easy.

 

What does the OP mean by a "bar girl" . A girl at a bar beer makes small money. A girl at an a go-go might have a monthly salary of 10,000 - 14,000 per month. Plus whatever additional she can earn. Some guys throw out crazy numbers. Some girls might hit it once in a while but most girls don't make much. But it still is decent money if you have no other prospects.

 

Some of the girls in the go-gos in Pattaya have the chance to do 10 days on 10 days (or up to her) off. But have to sell a certain number of drinks to be able to take time  off. It is a boring, stressful, tiring life. They girls get worn out and often their personality changes and they become hard. They often have to deal with jerks. A hot girl I know wanted to take time off to be w her kid. She was lucky to have an English guy buy her 6 drinks and another bought her 4. She got to take time off. Normally they get about 2 days off a month. This does not coincide with their periods.

 

A friend of mine who has a masters degree and works for the government in research makes 8,000 a month. But has some perks. No perks for bar girls. No health care or retirement. They are necessarily freelancers or the bar would be involved in prostitution which is illegal. Some bar girls have degrees (not from top unis as their family is poor) but found they make very small money in a regular job.

 

I am friends with several girls whose fathers are in bad shape and they try to pay for better hospital care for him. No, they do not ask me for money. These are real people trying to do the best they can. Wereas a government worker might get free health care for their family.  Although a friend who works for the BoT had to pay for the quality health care her dying mother received.

Not rubbish at all. 

Many of the young good lookers go 2 or 3 times S/T a night .

I know of several who who make 15-20k alone in lady drinks a month.

150k a month is a minimum for them.

Funny. OP requested input for wages in many categories. Seems like the greatest member knowledge is in the area of bar girls, not general workers and other more legitimate occupations.

That don't make sense to me what so ever if you are talking Thailand

 

I'm friends with a girl that works in a restaurant whose mother is in hospital and it costs her zero only time & maybe 30 baht.

My Ma-inlaw was in hospital for several weeks at a time for 2 years before she passed and costs to hospital was zero.
