Why do some brokers keep on manipulating the OFW plane ticket?


Have you ever been a victim of this some opportunist brokers? Well, maybe thousands of us are fuming with anger to some damn brokers for manipulating the OFW plane ticket.

Thousands of OFW  in Taiwan are working tirelessly so that they could save money for the future but here comes this some opportunist brokers keep on trying to squeeze our empty pockets. Instead of helping the poor OFW, they tend to collect more expensive and excessive fees.

When are we asking why we are not allowed to buy our own ticket? Well, their best answers always, “ Your Insurance is affiliated with the airline company that we choose, so you are not allowed to buy your own ticket...blahhh....blahhh....”

Come’on, meaning to say you really care to us? And you really think about our insurance or you are all thinking the assurance of your respective pockets?  We are not born yesterday!

As far as we know you are after this:
1. Credit card points in every purchase
2. Incentives from Airbus companies in every referral
3. Double incentives that you received from the “kulurom” vehicles that you hired to be used for transportation from dormitory to terminal.

Well, there may be a lot of reasons for this some brokers but as far as we know, all Airbus companies have an insurance. And if you are worried about our flight details, now it is our responsibility as an OFW to must give every detail about the flight. But not to the point that you will restrict us in choosing our Airbus. There is no section or article in Taiwan labor law that you are given the full authority to restrict us from buying or choosing our airbuses.

Another issue is that you are depriving our freedom of comfort in traveling from dormitories to the terminal.You let us rides on the vehicles that you hired wherein they drivers are kept on picking passengers from other dormitories along the way going to the terminal even if the vehicle doesn't have enough space, the result is, we look like sardines. You know what, the vehicle most of the time are overloading from dormitories to the terminal. And it’s risky.

Now, on behalf of OFW in Taiwan, We are calling the MECO and MOL to please take a look at this long issue that we OFW are facing. Salamat Ka-Pinoy!

What Will Be The Cost Of Placement Fee When Selected To Work Abroad?


Majority of the Overseas Filipino Worker in Taiwan are working in the industrial sector, mostly in semiconductor and electronics factories. While 20 percent are domestic helpers and caretakers.
Many Filipinos who wants to work abroad are usually and always concern about the amount of money they would need for the processing of working documents, about the amount for placement fees and others.

Licensed recruitment agencies listed under POEA are allowed to collect placement fees that is equivalent to the one month salary of the deployed OFW. For example, if your one month salary ing Taiwan is NT21,000 then NT21,000 is equivalent to 35,000 pesos which will be the placement fee. Although Taiwan may charge fees more than the one month salary because of additional fees such as broker’s fees, etc. 

Applicants will only pay the placement fee once they have already signed an employment contract. 
But some companies give refund once the employee started to work in their company.

New work policy in Taiwan approved amid of thousands are against the amendments




Another amendment to the labor law which may affect to all OFW. I do not know if this will be a good news for all us. But for sure majority of our OFW will be opposing this new burden working schedule.

From the previous law wherein, All migrant workers are entitled to fixed day off and a flexible day off in a week. But some companies are not abiding this kind of rule. And pity to those OFW who are under the company serving 5days work in a week and a fixed off.

Now, there are companies who are abiding the law and requiring their employees to work for 5 consecutive days with minimal overtime in a month.

As of November 9, the cabinet has approved the new amendments of the labor law, even if the people outside the Executive Yuan are yawning and blasting over these new amendments which give the employer the authority to require their employees to work for 12 consecutive days.

The cabinet said that both employer and employees can benefit this new amendment. And also this will help to boost the economy of Taiwan.

Do you think my fellow Ka-Pinoy this will help us or will kill us?

But according to Premier Lai Ching-te (賴清德), Even after the amendments to the Labor Standard Act, the five day work week remains law, which Allowing the employees to work 12 days in a row will still remain an "exception" to the rule.

Do you think my fellow Ka-Pinoy they're giving an “exception or deception”? You, yourself can tell. And Good luck to all of us!

Why Employers and Agencies Prefers First Time Applicants in Taiwan?

Have you ever wondered why agencies love first time applicants? One good answer is recruitment agencies are usually one step ahead of first timers whichever country they will go. Below are some reasons why they like to hire first time applicants in abroad specifically Taiwan.

1. An Ex-Abroad applicant kill approaches as they want all of their requests and prayers to be granted.
2. Innocence in regards to recruitment consultants since first timers knew less on how every agencies work.
3. Fair agency commission is paid by first timer with lesser complain. First timers just pay so that they can go right away.
4. Capitalism on first timers makes applicants depend chiefly on the agencies decisions to undertake whichever task is given.
5. Agencies love first time contractors for sure because they are easy to handle.
Although not all employers and agencies want first timers in the company, they still find the best talent for their continuous production. There are still lot s of companies in Taiwan that needs applicants with working experience.

Newly Amended Law Of Health Insurance For New Born Babies of Foreign Workers Now Approved








National Health Insurance of Taiwan have passes new amendments this November 7, wherein the newborn babies of foreign workers who will be born in Taiwan must be a member of National Health Insurance upon birth.

The former act was, the newborn babies of foreign nationals who have been born in Taiwan can only be insured six months after birth. Same with the foreign national who are holding the resident visa or work contract can be insured after six months of stay. But now, right after birth, newborn babies of foreign workers are eligible for National Health Insurance.

The amendment was considered because of concerns that the health of infants of legal foreign residents could suffer without coverage under the national insurance plan during the six-month vacuum.

Who will be covered?

The Ministry of Health and Welfare (MOHW) said the new law will cover newborn babies of both white collar and blue collar foreign residents in Taiwan as long as they have a legal resident certificate.

The newly amended law of article 9 will take effect as soon as it goes through the routine step of being officially announced by the Presidential Office.

Why Employers Choose Applicants With No Tattoo?


Almost 70% of employers in Taiwan choose job applicants who have no tattoo in their body, although some are allowed with a given size of the tattoo or it must be at the covered part of the body. Here are some reasons of employers why they are less likely to hire an applicant with tattoo:



1. Interference in medical diagnoses
There is a chance that you may come down with an unrelated medical condition that can cause you failure medical test in the Philippines or in Taiwan.


2. Offensive to others / Stigma
When you have a tattoo in visible part of your body, some see it as you are a member of gangster. Skulls, dragons, snakes etc can be offensive to others that can cause you in a world of trouble in Taiwan.

3. Company customers may frown on them
Distaste for the tattoos by the employers themselves but for the fear of how their customers would react in case strict audits are performed.


4. Dress code
The employer has a right to establish a dress code for its organization. Your employer can demand that you cover the tattoo while you're working. Employers has every right to fire if you don't follow the rules.


5. Some employers see it dirty
Others see tattoo as body arts, but not employers since its employee will wear the image of the company and its customers


Right or wrong, some people judge other people negatively for having tattoos. Not all employers of every companies do not hire applicants with tattoos. Some accepts it as long as the are getting the job done. It is not only in Taiwan but also in other regions, think twice before getting inked.
