Thai workers begin to return to Israel – Labour minister


Recommended Posts


The first 200 Thais to return to work in Israel’s agricultural sector will leave on Tuesday, Labour Minister Pipat Ratchakitprakarn said yesterday.


They are some of about 5,000 who will go to work in the country over the next two or three months, Pipat said.


Tel Aviv is seeking to recruit 10,000 foreign workers for its crucial agricultural sector and is offering 63-month contracts. The Thai workers are also being promised appropriate salaries.


The return by Thai nationals to work in Israel, which is still in conflict with Hamas, comes after assurances were offered by the Israeli authorities over their safety, the minister said.

Tempting for many I would think... considering the measly Thai salary offered to most.

Yeah, they actually pay really good for farm work in general. The median hourly salary for farm work in Israel is about 330 baht per hour. However, migrant workers probably get about 200 - 250 baht per hour. Despite that, it´s about 1600 - 2000 baht a day. Not many chances for that in Thailand. Of course it living expenses, that are mostly deducted from salary as the employer provide both shared living quarters and sometimes a meal per day.
