Working conditions in America and in Thailand

Nowadays there are still differences between working conditions in America and Thailand. In America the working conditions are more justiced for the people because of regulations concerning health, working hours and wages. In contrast in Thailand there are regulations but nearly nobody keep to them. As it is shown in the statistics the people working over 50 hours there are about 16.517 in Thailand. In America there are about 14085. Moreover, as shown on the pictures you can see that in Thailand more younger people work. Mostly, they work in one big room without any air conditioning, heating, food/drinks or opportunities for washing. These result in problems of health. Comparing to America most people work under more healthier conditions due to the regulations as well as the people work more in the third and fourth sector.
