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.

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.
