Don't accept paltry salaries

Postbox letter from John

Many teachers are not too concerned about how much money they make because they are only here to have a good time


Too many are clueless about money

Postbox letter from Brian

It's hard to believe how uneducated people are on here about money when they say "You'll make three times what a Thai does," or "You have to live like a Thai!" It's total rubbish


Living on the new wage mentality

Postbox letter from Bob

30K is less than 1,000 dollars a month. It is not possible to live on it anywhere in Thailand and this includes Isaan now; unless like most workers I meet: you already have retirement money from another country, do one heck of a lot of tutoring and extra work on the side, or you are very lucky.


The problems with 30K a month

Postbox letter from Bigtown

I have come to realise that with the current pay and contract formats being offered, you would in effect be earning less than a full-time corporate Thai employee of a similar educational background, but without any perks.
