I don't really understand what you're asking in terms of the 'work e-visa' but, yes, Thai single entry tourist visas cost around US $30. Get in touch with the Thai embassy or consulate nearest you (google 'Thai embassy - and the location').
If you can't visit them in person to apply for the visa (usually takes 2 to 4 days to process depending on where you go), you can normally mail them your passport and paperwork and get the visa that way.
There is no 'e-visa' for Thailand though, so you can't apply through some website and have a visa awaiting when you arrive as you can for Vietnam. I assume that visahq website is a private visa service that will get you the visa (you'll still have to mail them your passport) for a hefty surcharge.

That website is for a private outfit that charges a hefty fee for visa services (Embassy fee $40, Service fee $94.95, HST $12.34, Total $147.29!!!)
Better to contact your nearest Thai embassy or consulate directly. The embassy in Ottawa charges $40 for a single-entry tourist visa. http://thaiembassy.ca/en/visiting-thailand/visas/types-visas-periods-stay-fees/tourist-visa

To get a 60 tourist visa, download the application form from here: http://www.thaiconsulate.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=101&Itemid=125
This link provides info pertaining to the documents you're required to submit: http://www.thaiembassy.org/wellington/contents/files/services-20120615-180049-327744.pdf
I believe the fee has gone up to $45 though.
