There are now over 100 students who were being cheated by an employment agency which they said offered three-month job training with free lodging a pay in Singapore for 25,000-30,000 baht expense per head. However, when these students arrived in Singapore, they did not get to work for three months as agreed and for many of them their passports were also confiscated.

 

One of the deceived students revealed that when she and her friends found out they were being deceived by the employment agency, they gathered themselves together and asked the employer or the hotel they were working for to return to Thailand in which case they were allowed to do so. However, this did not happen for all the students especially for the ones who work for the hotel that employed over 50 of these Thai students as the wage paid to them are much lower than the wage paid to their local people. The average labour cost for Thai student is SGD 600-1,200 per person, whereas the labour cost for Singaporean is SGD 1,500-2,000 per person.

 

The students approached Paveena Hongsakul Foundation to seek support regarding the incident happened. Ms. Paveena said that she has received the complaint from over 100 students. The coordination with the police to prosecute with the case shall be conducted accordingly.
