Taiwanese businessmen urging the government to amend the "one fixed day off, one flexible day off" law


Taiwanese business leaders want to allow more flexibility in laborers for them to work any time during weekend or a holiday. 


General Chamber of Commerce chairman Lai Zheng-ai says the service sector, including tourism and restaurants, still find the existing  "one fixed day off, one flexible day off"  system overly inconvenient. 

Lai says the amendments should allow the service sector to move the rest days around and restore the old overtime pay, which pays workers double salary when they work on holidays. 


He also calls on the government to speed up its pursuit of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans Pacific Partnership's membership, saying Taiwan is bound to be marginalized if it's not part of any free trade agreement. 

With the expiration of the Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement approaching fast, his organization is also worried that Taiwan's exports to China will be gravely affected if the government doesn't seek to review it with Beijing.
