^ my thoughts - I can't think of any reason why General Prime Minister would consider easing restrictions; it will get worse as the push is on to work with their ASEAN relationships; see in today's news 800,000 workers from neighbouring countries are now fully legal to work here since May this this year; not all of them are labourers.

At present the #1 job for native English speakers is English teaching; the laws on that have toughened up hugely, especially in favour of schools employing Filipino teachers - who are paid the same rate as Thai teachers, generally around 15,000 baht per month
Look at the teaching site ajarn.com and how many schools now specify Filipino-only applicants

I don't know of any other occupation where there is genuinely a need/demand for large numbers of westerners?

Apart from bar owners intent on losing whatever size 'fortune' they bring with them!

I am a supporter of free movement for people who contribute...

This is an old post
But you are quite right, a farang with good qualifications for any job is not restricted to work in Thailand.
If the company values their employment they will make it happen.

I do disagree with the push for Filipino teachers.
We put my step-son in one of the better English schools and although they advertised native English speaking teachers, his teacher was Filipino and he said she wasn't very good
We complained and they moved him to a native English speakers class
