General Information and Millennial Jobs for every Filipinos

According to DGBAS the average monthly salaries in Taiwan are around NT$40,000

Cabinet level Directorate General of Budget, Accounting and Statistics reported this Thursday that in May Taiwanese employees including part time workers earn an average regular salary of NT$39,191 (US $ 1,285).

According to the report presented by DGBAS, the number of employees receiving a monthly salary of less than NT$30,000 in May fell to 2.994 million while those receiving monthly salary of NT$50,000 increased by 1.815 million  .

In May, a total of 437,000 unemployed people were recorded with 72.42% stating they paid less than expected, and at 11.43%, pointing to unsatisfactory job locations.

Pan Ning-hsin, deputy director of the Census Department under DGBAS, said the 72.42% dissatisfaction with salaries offered was a huge increase to 64.3% recorded last year.  This suggests a growing gap between the salaries of employers who are willing to pay and the hopeful employees. The only example of this is a job seeker with retail sales experience who is expecting a monthly wage of NT $ 29,184 but it will only be offered at NT$27,271, Pan said.

Despite the new increase, the number of average country employees has been growing at a slower pace of less than 2% on an annual basis since 2012, indicating that local job markets have remained good and stable.

The DGBAS data shows that in the past three years workers have provided nearly 7.1% of Taiwanese workers less than Japan at 37.9% and South Korea at 33%.

Part-timers, or temporary workers, are considered typical employees because they are weaker than full time workers.  They have lower wages, less benefits and protections from their employers.

According to Pan, not all workers are forced to take a job as a part-timer because many housewives and students want to enter this type of work.  According to DGBAS data, only 21.03% of workers do such work because they find it difficult to obtain and find a formal and full time jobs.
