Postbox letter from James
Don't let yourselves be exploited and milled by the system. Do not accept job offers below 70,000 baht per month.
Postbox letter from Paul
As a teacher, I have friends who have received little to no salary hike this year and what's worrying is the rate of inflation going on.
Postbox letter from Loy

Teaching for 300 baht an hour as the rest of the world enjoys itself
They are the shopping mall English teachers - gliding like pale, undernourished phantoms amid the hordes of weekend Thai shoppers. The main reason I empathize with the shopping mall teacher is because I was once one myself. I know how desperate and soul-destroying it can be.
Postbox letter from Derek
I really respect the people that come to Thailand and get jobs working in schools to help students learn English. I've worked these types of job in the past and know that I've made a difference in the lives of many of the students that I've worked with.
Postbox letter from Martin Chilvers
There seemed to be a time when 30-40,000 baht a month salaries were the norm, and I suppose like many teachers I felt that things were only going to get better. But what's going on in Thailand?

Postbox letter from James Phillips
I'm calling for a union to be set up with demands for an hourly minimum wage.
Postbox letter from Ken
Should ajarn.com pull the plug on those schools that are offering teachers a measly 200 baht an hour?
