Workforce becomes scarce in Phuket


3,000-5,000 workers are needed in Phuket and it’s possible alien workers might be hired to substitute for Thai workers.

Mr.Noppadol Ploy-yu-dee, Phuket’s Employment office chief, revealed organizations in Phuket are in need of workers, especially for restaurants, hotel and spa industries. 3,000-5,000 blue-collar workers are needed in all.

There is a tendency they might hire alien workers from countries other than Myanmar because Myanmar workers have gone back to work in their countries.

“We have been looking for workers from other provinces and spread the news over the country. The 300 Baht minimum daily wage policy will be launched soon so that more workers will be interested in working in Phuket,” said Mr.Noppadol.
