Have a friend who got offered a job for 2500bht a day. Is that a good wage and how much would he see after tax etc. Job is above board.

In the last figures which I saw, about 12% of the working-age population live on less than 2500 baht a month, so yes. It is 'liveable'. Will your friend be happy on that wage? That depends on your friend.

You can rent a three bedroom house for less than 7,500 baht per month.
Monthly elec will cost you a day's wage.

The rest is beer and hookers.

Yes. It's doable.

Apparently food and accommodation comes with the deal. So sounds like it may be a good deal>
