SATTAHIP – July 2, 2014 [Pattaya Daily News]; Pratueng jetty in Sattahip, there were about 100 alien labours working normally after some of them had travelled back to their countries. The employers had taken their alien labours to register for a work permit at the immigration office so that they could ensure their employees piece of mind. As a result of the alien workers going back to their home country the fishermen complained that they had a reduced work force.

 

Mr Yodying Lueng-a-run a 63 year old fishing boat captain revealed that he had 30 alien labours working on his fishing boat but during the spread of the rumour that Cambodian labours were being hunted and killed, lot of his work force went back to their home towns. However he had tried to explain to them that it was just a rumour and wasn’t true. Plus the boat owners were asked to take their labours to get them registered which the immigration officers had installed a pop-up registration desk at the jetty. However some alien labours had found new jobs after they had already registered which caused some employers to lose money. The registration fee was 3,500 baht per person.

 

Mr.Oun aged 23 from Myanmar said that he was actually frightened and needed to travel back to his country while after he heard the rumour that Myanmar labours were being hunted and killed. Fortunately his employees explained to him and took him to be registered , plus he also received a pay rise from 200 baht per day to 300 baht per day.
