Re: Wage hike takes sting out of back-to-school shopping (PM Friday, 17 May 2013) – So who gets this 300 per day? Maybe if you have full time employment you will get this massive increase. If you are a casual worker down from the farm you will have to negotiate a wage. You would be very naive to think the construction workers from across the borders are paid 300 baht. Their biggest worry is that their employers will call the Immigration 2 days before payday and they finish up with nothing.
