Migrant caregivers in Taiwan increased minimum wage to NT$20,000

The minimum wage for live-in migrant caregivers and domestic helpers in Taiwan signing new contracts from Aug. 10 has been hiked to NT$20,000 (US$665.7) from NT$17,000, CNA reported.

The minimum wafe increase was announced by Taiwan's Ministry of Labor (MOL). 

The new minimum wage rate will apply to both newly arrived migrant workers and those currently in Taiwan who sign a new contract.

The new minimum wage, however, will not affect contracts that are still in effect.

MOL data as of June 30 showed that there were 218,372 migrant caregivers and domestic helpers working in Taiwan, including 164,786 from Indonesia, 27,315 from Vietnam and 25,867 from the Philippines.

The minimum monthly wage for live-in caregivers and domestic helpers is lower than the national minimum wage, as such workers are not covered by the Labor Standards Act.
