Greetings from “third world countries”, as the ignorant Russians sometimes call #Thailand!
In the heated debate below the article in one channel of the Zen I was fascinated that such a review, an excerpt of this:
“The minimum wage in Russia is between Papua New Guinea and Vietnam. People Wake up!”.
Then the commentator traditionally indicated memorized “more than Mr. go, the cleaner will air in Russia.”
About Papua New Guinea sounds ridiculous, but that’s about the #Vietnam decided to check it because this could very well be like it. I remember the first time I went to live in Thai, I have studied a variety of statistics comparing Russia and Thailand and other Asian countries. And some figures I was pretty surprised, of course, they were not in favor of Russia. At GDP we are ahead of tai, and lots of other main ratings are not in our favor.
So this time I almost believed the commentator. Do you believe in? On the channel “Fell Today!”, which you’re reading, just blah-blah on the subject of figures, does not happen, everything as it should be with proof.
Now, compare how much the minimum get a job in Thailand, Vietnam and Russia.
Thailand. People work
It is known that in Russia the minimum wage is 12130 RUB, this is 171 dollar (not 177 as it says in the statistics, as we will see).
We watch “List of countries by minimum wage”.
Vietnam – from $132 to $190 per month at least. It turned out, well, sometimes Russia loses to Vietnam in the minimum wage.
Thailand – Not less than $10.44 per day, depending on the region, sometimes more.
Yes, in Thailand there are no laws about minimum salary in a month, I think and I have more recent information.
Unskilled workers in most provinces in 2020 will have the right to 315-320 baht a day, wrote the Bangkok Post at the end of last year.
The picture is from this article in the Bangkok Post
And employees had this right. Check, at the current rate is from $ 10.
As it is now to compare with the Russian minimum payment? It’s very simple.
For the calculation of the minimum monthly earnings Thais need to multiply the average daily wage for the number of working days in the factory calendar. In Russia like to arrange two days off a week, because we calculate that the minimum wage in Russia is over 22 working days.
12130 R. divide by 22 = 551 p. Or 171 USD divided by 22 = 7. 77. It all fits together.
7, 7 dollar. So the minimum #wage in Russia in a day. With more than $ 10 in Thailand.
By the way, Thais rarely have two days off a week, because my girlfriend at a daily minimum salary of just over $10 per month gets in your cafe 10 thousand baht. In the famous shopping network 7-eleven salaries are higher, but there is a working day lasts 12 hours.
And the gap between Russia and the minimum wage from Thailand, unfortunately, is constantly increasing owing to the weakening of our wooden, the Thai baht, on the contrary, strengthened against the dollar. And I see that the standard of living in Thailand is lower than in Russia.
What can be said in General about the minimum wage in Russia? From 2019 the value of the minimum wage equal to the subsistence minimum, which, of course, to put it mildly, ridiculous.
Worth remember that there is an “Index of Katze”, it shows the percentage of the minimum Wage from average wage in the country. In Russia in January 2020, the index is about of 25.99 %. It’s a lot or a little?
Further remains nothing how to summarize a quote from the same Wikipedia page, which, as you can see in the comments, the fans cleared, wrote clearly “some liberast”. But let them bring their common assessment, if it is possible.
I have it for today. Good earnings to all of us!
I will continue to tell about life in Thailand and to compare the statistical and survey data. To subscribe to the channel.
