I have just read a rather venomous and frankly racist anti-white post on here from 'Marisol', whom I suspect is Filipino, but I could be wrong.
He/she seems to be claiming that men from the UK/USA on 30-40k in Thailand are no more than right-wing, alcoholic 'burger flippers' in their own countries.
Here's the thing. To teach in Thailand now it is pretty much impossible (post waiver) without a degree in education. Like the one this 'burger flipper' from the UK has.
The days of schools just hiring any old white face without so much as finishing high school education are long, long gone. And that is a good thing, of course.
One detects yet another 'chip on the shoulder' Filipino. I work with many. I get on well with a few, but most (as in pretty much all of them in my experience) have a very poor level of written English. One of my duties is to check and edit their tests and worksheets before they print them. This is because they were almost always littered with poor spelling and grammar before the Head implemented this.
I do know one Filipino who earned the 70k we 'burger flippers' got at my school because his English was native level (he was born and educated in the USA to Filipino parents).
You're not paid less because 'muh racism', you're paid less because your English isn't good enough. Remember, your level of English is the key part of your teaching job in Thailand.
You passed your TOEFL? Great! Could you pass A-level English or write a grammatically perfect 15,000 word dissertation in the English language?
Thought not. Quite a few of us have, you know?
Now, get that big, fat, anti-white chip of yours off your shoulder.
Not a burger flipper
