Taiwan Presidential candidate and Kaoshiung Mayor Han Kuo-yu once again lambasted by migrant workers


Kaoshiung Taiwan- The migrant workers community are again fuming of anger after the Kaoshiung Mayor and  Kuomintang (KMT) presidential candidate Han Kuo-yu (韓國瑜) referred all migrant workers as "chickens."

Last August 29, during the online discussion about the policy of Taiwan with a topic of Taiwan's brain drain. During the discussion the boastful old man of Kaoshiung and a Pro-Chinese mayor had compare the migrant workers as a bunch of "Chickens" coming to the country while the locals referred as Phoenix flying out of the country.

His words got the attention of everyone even the Former Minister without Portfolio Joyce Yen Feng, immediately took exception to the comment and admonished Han by saying, "Don't speak in this way, it's discriminatory! Migrant workers are also people."

Han then responded by saying, "The example I used was not very good. Please forgive me everyone." Han then asked, "Why should senior talent stay in Taiwan?"

This is the second time the old man of Kaoshiung utter such an discriminatory remark to migrant workers. The first one was calling Filipino Migrants as "Maria" referring to a low class in the society.

Meanwhile the DPP Taoyuan Mayor Cheng Wen-tsan (鄭文燦), also said, "I don't think a presidential nominee should have these kinds of slips of the tongue. There are many foreign embassies really concerned about this kind of thing." He then called on Han to issue a formal apology for the "blunder."

While his rival on presidential race and current President of Taiwan Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said on Aug. 30, "We are grateful to new immigrants and the contributions of migrant workers to Taiwan." She added, "We hope that everyone works to eliminate discrimination against them in Taiwanese society.”

In behalf of OFW, if we could only vote for the next election, 1000 percent you can't get a single vote from the migrants. We are thankful to President Tsai ing-wen for upbringing the moral of migrant workers. And also to the Mayor of Taoyuan City and the rest who defend the rights of the migrant workers.

  2. if there are no migrant workers ,mothers will be force to leave their job to take care of their children, sons and daughters will have the burden to take care of their sick and old parents, factories will be less productive due to lack of manpower.overall it will affect to the growth of the country's economy.
