Incomes: bar work vs conventional?

Recommended Posts

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. 

I wonder why!! The admin staff where I work are on a basic of between 15,000-25,000, with the possibility of making commission. A junior doctor I know makes over 100,000. A Thai friend who's an assistant to the ECOs at the British Embassy makes around 30,000.

So whats your input? Funnily it seems like nothing.

 

The average wage for a clerk in a shop seems around 8-10k, as far as bar work, there's girls doing over 7 st a day, ( thats from managers)

My take from rural area of what l know or hear only.

Ok monthly wages bar-girl.... zero to whatever a month you can work out.

public high school teacher....6000 - 60,000 + in rural school.

beginning public uni instructor....Only know Uni teacher 25,000.

entry level nurse....locally 6,000.

accounting clerk, BA degree.... Don't know S/Employed maybe earn more.

7/11 cashier....They get minimum day rate and can work overtime.

Big C cashier....Same as 7-11.

front desk clerk, small/medium hotel...Don't know usually family member.

server in resto chain like Fuji...If a franchise minimum day rate.

No need to get snarky. I was making an observation. Didn't see any rules that say I can't observe and comment. 

But here you are, my input, and much more than nothing pal. 

Worker in tire manufacturing plant, 20,000 a month. 

Accounting position in government hospital, 12,000 a month. 

Accounting position in hotel, 20,000 month (long hours, dedicated worker). 

Thai massage therapist in upscale hotel, 15,000 to 25,000 depending on season. 

Textile factory worker, 300 to 500 per day. 

Milk sales/delivery (on scooter) girl, 15000 to 20000 month. 

7-11 supervisor (of 6 stores), 22,000 a month. 

Okay, good enough or do you want more to take me off your "nothing" list?

Can you give us a few more than your measley 2 guesses?

Have a great day.

This is just what I can verify;  freelance massage lady ( massage only ) 135 bht/hr, at the moment averaging 3-4 hrs a day, high season 7-8 hrs a day 

Boss lady of Spa who organises staff , 600 bht a day for 13 hr day 30 days a month.

Bellhop at local resort on 300 a day about 20+days per month, low season.

Competent builders/ carpenters working 6 days a week 400 a day with the odd bonus thrown in.

I also read somewhere that Toyota was going to pay its line workers 480 a day, I don't know if it has happened yet.

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

Yes, and maybe even more. You have to remember, the girls have the "marvelous product," you know, the one you have, and when you sell it, you still have it. And the smart girls figure out how to best use it.

 

I know a good looking Thai lady who now owns two resorts on holiday islands, a speedboat, a luxury car and has a grand house on the mainland--all acquired through proper use of her marvelous product.  She is now in her late 30's does not have a steady man, but plays the young farangs like a drunken sailor on holiday. She spends money like an expat and always seems to have an entourage of hangarounds continually sucking off her.

 

Never underestimate what a smart girl with that amazing marvelous product can do.  There seems  to be an endless supply of dumb farangs to finance them.

The programmer in my company earns 21,000 per month, but she is a freshie and will easily move up from there.

The sales girl gets a base salary of 10,000, but with commissions does up to 30,000 months. Average 20k+

A friend who works in a call center earns 10,000 per month.

Graphic designer with 10 years experience and skill earns 45,000.

Girls in Nana, typically a 10-12,000 base salary. Most were averaging between 20,000 to 30,000 per month.

One girl who worked at the "massage" place was making 60,000 to 80,000 per month, easy.

100,000+ is rare, but they do exist. Need to be a stunner, smart, disciplined, and in the right venue.

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. 

 

Look at the number of bar girls who are now farang's wives and have houses, cars, liquid assets and other possessions including family support, housing, transportation and medical care.

Now that is just  total rubbish .

were do you get your  information from ?. 

In possible to get that much money ,

3,300 thai bht a day in 30 days no way unless she is 10 out of 10 in looks and body then she gets her day of the month and that can run for up to 5 days if she is lucky.

Well now, in a local girlie bar where sexpats drink Chang, never buy ladies drinks and want a short-time for B500, you may be right. However, there are many upper-class and Jap/Kor bars where a girl can make >B5k a short time and B300-B500 a drink. A good looking massage girl in Danok can get three or four customers a day; more if she works O/T.  And don't forget those who hit the jackpot and find a farang to marry.

get your head out of the sand 

 

bar girls being exploited :clap2:

 

its their chosen career path,   where else would they make 40-50k a month with various suckers sending monthly payments

 

many many bar girls tell me they love their job, they have fun, they have companionship with their female friends,  they get drunk when they want to free,  they have suckers taking them on holidays, they have idiots buying them new phones, clothes.............

 

c,mon ?

All prices per month. Varies from region (Phuket pays more). Some jobs have perks such as free food and room.

 

Source of info is GF who has friends in each of these jobs.

 

NOTE:  teachers earn a lot more with over time or private tutoring or weekend teaching. Easily double up. And of course with good university and distinctions will get paid more
