Re: To Shut Up or Not

When it comes to unequal wealth distribution, Thailand is not all that much different than the USA. The richest 10 families in America have more wealth than the bottom 50%, which is over 150,000,000 folks. The top 1%, has more wealth the bottom 90%. The difference is in the west we have a much bett...

Re: To Shut Up or Not

I hear what everyone is saying here, but is it really any different than Western ideology? What do we tell foreigners here in the United States? Don't bring your religion here. Don't bring your ideology here. Conform to our way of thinking or leave. You weren't born here so your opinion doesn't mat...

Re: To Shut Up or Not

I have said it before, a handful of rich and powerful families own and control Thailand and every institution there. I obviously can not elaborate anymore. The one thing I can say is their greed knows no bounds and they will never give up their power. As far as the poor Thais not trying they know if...

Re: Jobs for young Thai people

I have some uneducated relatives back in Tennessee who lost their jobs during the recession around 2007, and rather than take a new job which was outside their skillset and paying lower wages than they had before, they sat on their butts and collected food stamps and other government handouts. Most...

Re: Jobs for young Thai people

I think this depends on the kid, my step son aged 21 went to a technical college from 18-20 years, whilst there he was sent on job experience with a motorbike manufacturer in Chonburi, no pay but free accommodation and food , this ended when it was disclosed the school was getting a back hander for...

Re: Jobs for young Thai people

The best thing that could help young people is for the Future Forward party to get the bill passed that they will put forward this week. It is to stop conscription & replace it with a system where volunteers in the armed forces will be given a 5 year training programme to learn a trade & come out o...

Re: Jobs for young Thai people

Mrs tam's oldest niece languished for the best part of a year after graduating from Rajabhat. After a 6-month, totally unpaid 'internship' at Bangkok Hospital, she was back home, lazing around in her room, sucking up the free internet and lamenting the lack of opportunities. However, about 2 months...

Re: Jobs for young Thai people

After 5 years of collage in Udon with all the associated expenses my step daughter went down to Bangkok earlier this year to be presented with her diploma in business management by a member of the royal family. That was the last 10K Baht of completely wasted money. Should have spent it setting her ...

Re: Stickman Comes To Udon Map

Stick does not just write about the bar scene, he covers a lot of what is going on in Thailand especially issues regarding foreigners. As well he speaks fluent Thai and probably knows more about Thailand than most of us put together.
