Hope the officials of Philippines and Taiwan will have clear Agreement regarding the folowing

:Wages of the Caretaker will rise
:There is already a contract with factory workers with many side contracts that are endorsed
:Safety condition for our Fisherman

The minimum wage of caretakers, caregivers, domestic helpers currently seats at NT$ 17,000 or around Php28,500 per month. A closed door meeting from labor chiefs of Taiwan have been held concerning the the rights of migrant workers in Taiwan, specially the dometic household workers.

This group of workers are not inuded in Taiwan's Labor Standards Act and earn less than who work in factories like electronics, semiconductor, textile and others.

There are about 253,000 plus caregivers, caretakers and  household workers in Taiwan that mainly come from Indonesia (193,187) while others from the Philippines (31,600) and Vietnam (28,392).

Let's see the update very soon. Do not yet hope for a while and we not sure if all of the DOLE's requests will be given the Ministry of Labor (MOL).

There was a conference  last September 25 2019 the members of the Technical Working Group (TWG) of the Philippines and Taiwan to finalize the agreements at the Joint Labor Conference (JLC) between MECO and TECO. One of the commitment of Taiwan mentioned in that meeting is that the Taiwan government will raise the minimum wage of our Catetakers, very soon!
