Unhappy Thai lady watch your back Mr Tribal when dosh involved
Ok mate but sometimes things change
Another job sorted for her, this time cooking in a patisserie, every Tuesday and Wednesday, 6 hours per day, above minimum wage too, possibly some extra days if she does ok, starts on Tuesday. So that is now a minimum of 22 hours per week, not bothering with the Thai restaurant, the pay was too low and the travel costs would have eaten up all of the money earned.
Think of all them yummy cakes coming home
I do like cakes, so I hope so, not had any freebies from the bakery she has been working in so far.
plenty of cash in hand jobs around the farms of england, working on a field has different regulations and the farmer pays a basic income tax direct to HMRC for each person, something like 25 quid for the whole season..
Just to update. I have now settled with the Restaurant owners lawyers regarding underpayment of minimum wage/no provision of holiday pay/failure to provide a written contract etc while my step-son was employed at the Respondent's restaurant. The sum of £1400.00 was paid into my Step-son's account today on a'full and final settlement' basis. Back in May the sum of £800.00 was paid into my wife's account. £2200.00 will mean a decent holiday in Thailand for both of them and although it has involved quite a lot of work for me, it has been worth it not just for the monetary gain but also because I have learned that wages and conditions for existing staff at this particular restaurant have now improved and I take some of the credit for that. Furthermore I have learned a great deal about employment rights and how to stand-up to bullying, abusive West End Solicitors! I am happy to share that knowledge with anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation to my wife and step-son. I urge you to stand up to these blatent breaches of employment legislation. Only this way will we be able to put a stop to these widespread abuses.
Your wife sounds like she's getting along well, tribal. I keep reading other threads where wives can't find any work and yours is doing baking - a traditionally farang but not very Thai thing! (My wife helped bake her first cake the other day. A new experience for her, she was very happy!)
She has baked two cakes for a Thai restaurant and worked 3 days there, but the money was terrible. She is making sandwiches 2 days a week at a bakery, the bakery has 2 shops, but she is working in an industrial unit. The other job is working for a trendy cafe/patisserie, 3 days a week, the boss has offered 5 days a week, but she want 2 days off and also wants to keep working for the bakery at the moment.
She had to buy a chefs jacket for the cafe/patisserie, it was diffircult finding one small enough, 34 was the smallest and that had long sleeves and she wanted short sleeves, so she has size 36. I've found the jobs for her and she doesn't like to ask how much she is going to paid or when she is going to be paid, so I email the boss and find out!
Is your wife looking for any jobs Mr Living? Did she enjoy eating the cake?
She's not looking for any jobs at the moment. She enjoyed the cake a lot! Banana cake - her favourite...
My wife made carrot cake this evening, I'm not a fan of carrot cake, so passed on a taste test!
When wifey was here Mr Living she was shown cake making by mother and thoroughly enjoyed doing it so maybe a farang thing that Thais get into when here.
