Migrant workers exposed labor broker for continuing business with revoked license


The Taiwan International Workers' Association (TIWA), a migrant worker protection group, has uncovered a labor broker that continued to collect fees and even fabricated residence permits despite having its business license revoked.


The group said Monday that at least six migrant workers were victimized by Quanta International Manpower Agency, which continued to operate even though the Ministry of Labor (MOL) revoked its license on Nov. 21, 2020, when it failed to renew the license.


Of the six victims, the TIWA said, five have overstayed their visas because the residence permits given to them by the broker were fake.


At a news conference held by the TIWA, a Filipino migrant worker said she was not aware that her resident permit was fake and that she had overstayed her visa until an officer from the National Immigration Agency visited her employer.


According to the TIWA, the broker was fined by the Taipei City government on March 2 for failing to fulfill its duties, causing an employer to break the law.


The TIWA said it was ridiculous for a broker without a business license to be accused of failing to "fulfill its duties" as a licensed migrant worker agency, and it asked the MOL to launch an investigation into the case.


The TIWA said the MOL has a duty to inform employers and migrant workers with dealings with brokers if those brokers are engaged in illicit or illegal practices.


The MOL should also streamline the employment process for both migrant workers and employers, while the ministry's employment offices should provide multi-language services for migrant workers, the TIWA suggested.


In response, the MOL said unlicensed labor brokers face fines of between NT$300,000 (US$10,787) to NT$1.5 million, and the fabrication of residence permits for migrant workers violates Taiwan's Criminal Code. -Central News Agency

Ginang, na-hit and run at tuluyang naulila na ang mga anak, asawa humihingi ng hustisya


Lubos na nagdadalamhati ang mister ng isang ginang na ito matapos ma hit and run o takbuhan ng hindi pa nakikilalang suspek. 


Madilim sa pinangyarihan ng aksidente at hindi rin tukoy ang pagkakakilanlan kung anong uri ng sasakyan ang nakabangga sa ginang.


"Kung sino kamang nakabangga sa asawa ko, salamat sa pag hit and run mo dahil sa iyo naiwan ng asawa ko ang aming maliliit pang mga anak sana'y nakakayanan ng kunsensya mo," ayon sa mister nito.


"Ang ginawa mo dahil kahit lumitaw ka at akuin mo ang kasalanan mo kahit bayaran mo ang danyos saamin hindi mona maibabalik ang buhay ng asawa ko," dagdag nito.


Ang "Hit and Run" ay tawag sa kasong nakabangga at tinakbuhan ang nabangga at dapat itong tulungan "on the spot". Samakatuwid, ay hindi dapat takasan ang kanyang pananagutan dahil maaari itong humarap sa patong pating na kaso.


Paalala lang sa lahat ng drivers na mag ingat sa pagddrive. Huwag pababayaan ang nabangga, kung meron man.

Taiwan plans to allow more migrant workers in the construction sector, mulls to add 3,400 workers


Taiwan's Cabinet is considering a plan that will hire more migrant workers for private construction projects and estimates of hiring additional 3,400 workers.


Taiwan Cabinet held two meetings to discuss the proposal, which is aimed at easing the chronic labor shortages in Taiwan's construction industry according to an official in the Ministry of Labor (MOL).


Under the current version of the plan, the government would scrap a requirement that a private construction project has to have an overall value of at least NT$10 billion in order for it to qualify to hire migrant workers, CNA reported.


For construction bids by individual companies, the threshold for hiring migrant workers would be lowered from NT$1 billion to NT$200 million, which could be comprised of two separate projects with values of at least NT$100 million, the official said.


The project would have to be one of the specific types of construction defined by the government as benefiting the public, such as those related to public infrastructure, sports, tourism, and urban renewal, according to the official.


Although this restriction would exclude many types of private construction, the MOL estimates that it would still allow qualifying companies to hire around 3,400 additional migrant workers.


MOL statistics as of March 2021, there were 713,933 migrant workers in Taiwan and a total of 4,599 worked in the construction sector.

Filipino domestic workers in Hong Kong alarmed by the mandatory vaccination plan


Migrant worker groups in Hong Kong criticized its plans to make coronavirus vaccines mandatory for all foreign domestic helpers.


Those wanting to apply for work visas in Hong Kong or renew their current contracts would need to show they had been vaccinated.


"This is clearly an act of discrimination and stigmatization against migrant domestic workers," Dolores Balladares Pelaez, chair of United Filipinos in Hong Kong


"Again, we are being singled out and targeted," Pelaez added.


Hing Kong officials said domestic workers were deemed "high risk" both because they enter from overseas and often gather outdoors in large numbers on Sundays.


Additionally, migrant groups pointed out that wealthier foreign migrants such as the white-collar financial workers are not being forced to get vaccines.


Meanwhile, the Philippine Consulate is now in coordination with the Hong Kong government regarding a plan for the mandatory vaccination of domestic workers in the special region.

110 million na Pilipino maaaring makakatangap ng P2,000 ayuda sa ilalim ng Bayanihan 3 Act


Lahat ng 110 million na Pilipino ay makakatangap ng cash aid o ayuda na may halagang P2,000 sa ilalim ng Bayanihan to Arise as One Act or Bayanihan 3 na kasalukuyang pinaguusapan sa Kongreso.


P405.5 Billion ang tinatayang budget ng Bayanihan Act 3 na magbibigay sa ayuda sa mga mayaman, mahirap at mga middle class na status sa Pilipinas.


“Everyone’s affected by this pandemic – poor Filipinos, rich Filipinos, and especially those in the middle class who were not covered by previous ayuda... So this ayuda will be for everybody,” ayon kay Reps. Sharon Garin.


“There were so many complaints on the distribution (of the previous SAP programs), so it’s better to err in over inclusion rather than over exclusion,” Marikina congresswoman and deputy minority leader Stella Quimbo.


Gagawing priority ang diskusyon sa Bayanihan Act ayon kay Speaker Lord Allan Velasco at inaasahan na makakatangap ng tulong ang lahat ng Pilipino.

Grocery store owners being challenged by youth to open their own community pantries

 

A youth organization has challenged grocery store owners to open their own versions of community pantries to feed residents whose employment and livelihoods have been impacted by the COVID-19 surge's tight lockdowns.

 

Members of the Samahan ng Progresibong Kabataan (Spark) staged a visual demonstration by marching to many grocery stores and taking pictures of themselves while holding placards asking why wealthy and millionaire mall owners are unable to replicate what average people have done.

 

“It is only logical to ask, if it’s possible for ordinary people to reach out, then why can’t billionaires do it as well? With all the riches they have accumulated throughout their decades of operations and unfair labor practices, opening their stores and bodegas is the least they can do,” Spark spokesperson John Lazaro said.

 

Even after the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the profits of neighborhood pantry donors cannot be contrasted to the large riches of mall and supermarket operators.

 

As organizers set up temporary stalls where residents who were left with little or no money after the lockdowns would get their food for the day, the neighborhood pantry has become a hot subject.

 

While it was praised as a positive move, others questioned whether it was necessary to monitor the pantries because they could be hazardous to public health, particularly if some people fail to follow precautions such as physical separation and wearing face masks, which could lead to COVID-19 transmissions.

 

Following the overcrowding at actress Angel Locsin's community pantry, several government agencies discussed the feasibility of overseeing pantries and requiring organizers to report their operations to city municipalities.

 

Due to an increase in COVID-19 incidents, Metro Manila and the surrounding provinces of Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, and Rizal were put under an enhanced neighborhood quarantine (ECQ). The tight lockdowns resulted in a significant drop in some sectors' earnings, and some sectors claim that the government's P1,000 per eligible family member is insufficient to meet basic needs for even a week.

President Tsai Ing-wen reponds to the article saying Taiwan is now most dangerous place on earth

Taiwan is now the "most dangerous place on earth" as it becomes "an arena for the rivalry between China and the United States," according to the London-base international magazine The Economist warned in its latest issue, CNA reported.


President Tsai Ing-wen said The Economist article highlighted the threat that China's military expansion poses to the Taiwan Strait and the surrounding areas.


"I hope the Beijing authorities come to realize that the PLA's actions in this regard contradict their own proclamations of China's "peaceful rise" and are only driving greater international concern," she wrote.


"But though Taiwan does face a real threat from China, I want to assure everyone that our government is fully capable of managing all potential risks and protecting our country from danger," she added.


Meanwhile, Johnny Chiang, chairman of Kuomintang, Taiwan's main opposition party, told reporters on the sideline of a religious event that The Economist article echoed his view that the Taiwan Strait should not become a battleground for superpowers vying for influence.

Taiwan named as the most dangerous place on earth per London-base magazine The Economist


London-base international magazine The Economist named Taiwan as the "most dangerous place on earth" as it becomes "an arena for the rivalry between China and the United States."


The magazine said in an article that the U.S.' "strategic ambiguity" over Taiwan's security is breaking down and the U.S. is coming to fear that it may no longer be able to deter China from seizing Taiwan by force.


"Although the United States is not treaty-bound to defend Taiwan, a Chinese assault would be a test of America's military might and its diplomatic and political resolve," quoted from Phil Davidson, chief of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, as saying that China may attack Taiwan before 2027.


The article suggested that Taiwan must start to devote fewer resources to expensive weapons that are vulnerable to Chinese missiles and more to tactics and technologies that would frustrate an invasion.


The article did not offer any suggestions or analysis of how all sides - the U.S., China and Taiwan - can reduce tensions and find a diplomatic solution.


The Economist article ended by saying: "Nowhere presents such a test of statesmanship as the most dangerous place on Earth."
