  14. Supposedly if giving the increase automatically for all contract workers not the only works from Indonesia and not only the workers who signed a new contract.automatically for old and new.... It's very unfair if for the only new worker's who is signed a new contract .....

  18. That would be glad, actually ofw here in taiwan has no weekly off,however some other are not allowed to have day off according to thier employer! Not is that fair for reasoning that there is no one will take care thier patients if the worker took off! There is a lot of things that goverment must know and why we pilipino's deserved to be raise our monthly salary, first things some employer are not giving enough food, not allowing to take rest or to take off,working 24/7 and not even free medical from our employer,midecal should be shoulder by the employer.
    Hope this concern will concieve by the government in taiwan!
    Salary must raise for CARETAKER
