Management model, Foreign workers, Factory managers, Western region


This research aimed to analyze the first order and second order confirmatory factors of management model for employing foreign workers.  The study examined six factors: labor shortage, labor demand, labor wages, characteristics of labor law & policy and language. To analyze the data, confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation modeling analysis were carried out using a quantitative approach which collected data from 400 managers in the manufacturing sectors in the western region of Thailand. The research tool was questionnaires with a reliability of 0.98. The statistics used in data analysis include percentage, mean, and standard deviation. The first order confirmatory factor analysis showed that the labor shortage had three main factors: diligence, willingness to work, and following orders. The labor demand had two factors: responsibilities and patience. The labor wages include cost effectiveness and cost reduction. The nature of work consists of two factors: the selection of labor suitable for the work and the risks of laws and government policies. There is only one component in the government agencies that are there to help. However, the language aspect does not affect the hiring of foreign workers. The second order confirmatory factor analysis revealed that the first factor affecting the decision to hire foreign workers is job characteristics with a regression weight of 98. The flowered factors are labor wage with a regression weight of .41, and labor demand with a regression weight of .38 at statistical significance at the .05 level. Other factors do not affect hiring foreign workers.
