When P&N learned about the redundancies at Samsung, it sent recruiters to Nakhon Ratchasima land set up a booth to make it easier for new  employees to sign up.

In only three days the company has registered 150 new workers and would remain open to job applicants until the end of July.

Under its offer, workers will get a 300 baht daily wage with overtime and hard-work per diem, free  uniforms and meals and accommodation.
