Taiwan lists over 51,000 undocumented migrant workers, seeks practical solution over the issue

 

Taiwan promised to come up with practical solutions for the high number of unaccounted-for migrant workers in the country.


There are 51,087 undocumented foreign workers currently overstaying their visas in Taiwan, according to Ministry of the Interior statistics.


The authorities are currently deliberating about an adjustment but that the Cabinet has the final say, Minister of Labor Hsu Ming-chun said.


She said the problem with a shortened waiting period is that the number of foreign workers will skyrocket if cases of migrant workers absconding from their jobs continue at the current rate.


Additionally, Taiwan's Deputy Interior Minister Chiu Chang-yueh also proposed raising the minimum wage for migrant workers and allowing them to change employers freely to lower the chance of them running away. (Photo by CNA)
