Office of Labour Affairs in Tel-Aviv inspects Thai workers in Kibbutz “Ginosar” and “Ami’ad”

 

 

 

 

 

On 20 August 2011, officials at the Royal Thai Embassy’s Office of Labour Affairs in Tel-Aviv traveled to Tiberias to inspect Thai workers working in Kibbutz “Ginosar” and “Ami’ad”.

 

At Kibbutz “Ami’ad”, there are several kinds of fruit tree orchards including avocado, lichee, lime, orange, mango, and cheery. Eight Thai workers and one Vietnamese worker are employed to do agricultural works there.  They each receive an income of some 5,700-5,800 shekels per month and could remit some 3,500 shekels back home each month. In a season with plenty of harvest, they could earn up to 7,000 shekels a month since the Kibbutz will give them an extra payment of some 1,600-1,700 shekels for two months.

 

From the inspection, the Thai workers are found to have a good living condition. They are paid on time and receive a payslip detailing their gross income and expense every month. They are also provided an accommodation with facilities such as TV, fridge, and air-condition included.

 

At Kibbutz “Ginosar”, 17 Thai workers are employed in banana, lichee, and avocado farms. They receive an income of approximately 4,800-5,200 shekels per month and could remit some 3,200 shekels back home each month. From the inspection, the officials found that the workers do receive neither a payslip nor report of their remittance. On the matter, they will consult with Leebar Manpower Serivces, the workers’ job placement firm, to work out on the solution. The officials were also asked by the workers about tax refunding on their income.

 

The officials gave the workers some sport gears for them to use in their rest time and a Thai national flag to boost their morale before they left the Kibbutz.
