Beware smokers! Taiwan has thousands of "Professional Cigarette Butts Busters"



Do you smoke? Well, if you are in Taiwan you must be aware that there are professional Cigarette Butts Busters. It's also my first time to hear this lucrative kind of work.

It is true in Taiwan there are thousands of Cigarette Butt Busters and they are being paid by Taiwan's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). According to them, one regular informant earns NT$100,000 per month and he is doing this for seven years.


How does this work?
If the informant sees someone is smoking they will record a video and they will wait until a smokers throw the butt of a cigarette. From then on they will hand the recorded video to the authority and half of the penalty which will be charged from the smoker will go to the informant.

How much is the penalty for littering?
It ranges from NT$1200 - NT$6000. Half of the fine will goes to the informant.

According to EPA, the Toufen Township, Zhunan Township, and Miaoli County has many "Professional Informants."

EPA is strict on these things because its hard to remove from our environment and block the drainage ditches.

Beware everyone especially who are smoking in public places. Please disposed your garbage properly.

Numerous Companies In Taiwan To Eliminate Rehire Status Of Contract Migrant Workers


According to several reports, some companies in Taiwan will renive the 'rehire' status for contract migrant workers. Upon this situation, migrant workers from Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia and other countries may not be able to rehire or renew their contracts.  

This problem has already seen due to the on going trade war between the United States and China where raw materials for both countries have become higher in prices and other items out of exports.

Overseas Filipino Workers in Taiwan will now have a hard time to renew contracts. Other reason for companies removie rehire status is the higher minimum wage where they prefer first time applicants istead of increasing the salary of their current employer.

Other companies already lessen the allowances and remove some bonuses to accomodate the new minimum wage in Taiwan.

Divorce Act of 2018 seeks to pass in Senate



What happened to the previous approved divorce bill that had been approved by our Congress in the Philippines? As far as we remember last year of March the House of the Representative approved a divorce bill but it was not been tackled in the Senate since the majority of the members are against of the bill.

Senator Risa Hontiveros filed a bill which is called Senate Bill 2134 or Divorce Act of 2018. This bill seeks to instill the absolute divorce in the country.

What are the grounds in filing a divorce?
1. Psychological Incapacity of either spouse- present at the time of marriage or later.
2. Violation of the Violence  Against Women and their Children Act.
3. Rape by the respondent spouse before marriage.
4. Irreconcilable differences or irreparable breakdown of marriage despite of many efforts to reconcile.


What are the other penalties?
1. If a court found in any force, fraud, or even intimidation to compel the other spouse to file the petition for absolute divorce shall faced imprisonment for five years and a fine P200,000.

2. If any of the parents fail to support the child or Alimony which have been ordered in court then shall be punished by prison mayor or fined P100,000 but not to exceed P300,000.




Above mentions are the criteria if when to file a divorce. But I doubt if this bill will pass in our Senate because the majority of the members are against this bill. And if ever this Act will pass, for sure the Palace will reject this because President Duterte a year ago had expressed his resistance.

All OFW will now be required to pay SSS Premium!



Are you a member of SSS? being OFW, I guessed all of us are members of the Social Security System. For a long time since we became OFW, we are not obliged or force by the government to pay for our SSS.

Are you aware that if President Rodrigo Duterte signed the Senate Bill 1753,  all of OFW will now be required to pay SSS Premiums? Yes, All OFW will not be anymore exempted in paying.

Gordon said as the author of the Senate Bill, this will expanded powers which are needed because the current salary credit and contribution of employees "is only limited to P16,000 which yields very little benefit."


At the same time, the SSS would also be empowered to invest its Reserve Funds to grow the wealth of SSS and ultimately yield higher income."

"The SSS must be given a chance to do what they can for the people because the government could not base its policies on fear but on trusting the people, especially those with tremendous responsibility," he said.

So if ever this will be implemented, the Employer or the Broker will now be obliged to deduct the premium amount on the salary of the OFW.
