Default Contract Banana Farming in Thailand

I think there may be a few people who will find this article from the Bangkok Post interesting.

Fear of a banana republic | Bangkok Post: news

Conversions of units of measure used in the article:
One acre equals approximately 2.6 rai, a measure of area commonly used in thailand.

The 300 Thai baht per day that most of of the workers receive equals about US$8.50
