Best approach someone can have, is to be fair to yourself and stop playing victim. Everyone deserve what they have.
I agree here with andrew, is easy to make money in taiwan. Is all about stepping out of average misserable life, meet some cool people, find a nitche. Get or learn a skill, and leverage it later.
Taiwan has shitload of money, people, families have money, no dept, low utilities cost,even taiwanese dinosaurs companies sitting on big hill of cash. On top of it, concentration of capital is unbelivable. West coast of taiwan is one the most populated area. You can reach like 10 mio of people within a hour of ride on your scooter for less than a 50 twd. Is crazy and folks do not forget, government is super relax. Low taxes, and low law enforcment. I mean if you not making money in this place, gotta be a problem with you, not with a market. Market is out there. Not mention they are small island next to large continent, market wit one billion people, which grows up like 7% yearly for last 30 years. They speak same language. We have nothing like this in Europe.
Yea sure, they totally deserved to be paid less than 30k. Bosses are cheap and on another hand people do no really create a lot of value for a companies. I blame their parents for it. Kids are totally spoiled/scared cause of parents. Living in shadow of parents, not gettin enough sun to open and shy by themself. They are not fully an adults.They can not take action
I know what am talking about, cause my wife is the same. I met her like 6 years ago, when we starting dating. Was like 21 back than, but i already try to have goals in life. I mean, i was on my own since 17. On another hand her mentality was like mentality of teenage girl. Said to her, babe i can marry you for papers, my country is super relax and in 4 years down the road you will have EU passport, and straight acess to biggest world labour market. For exchange i wanna taiwanese arc. And she was like oh, oh, my babi,babi he does not like foreigners. Well no need for him to find out, but my babi is smart, he will find out… I really do not know how i keep up with all this taiwanese crap, really. When i married her 5 years later, there was so much politcs involved on family level, one day i simple had to sit on airplane and go home. Could not breathe. Sent her text you come or not, up to you.
I remember my wife, friend, classmate. Both girls start working for the same taiwanese company, we were chilling at bar on friday, and this friend was sending her CV all around asia. What a determination. Yea she was from poor family and far from being pretty. She knew it, no rich engineer will ever marry her, and her babi will want more money every month down the road. She got a good job in korea, there she met her dutch boyfriend. Not a really handsome guy, but cool enough, with chill family. Nothing like this was for her in taiwan. She got residency in netherland based on their relation ( no marriage needed). And soon even better job at recognised dutch company, with life balance package. She makes over 100k twd now, and this is like after tax. And boyfriend having own apartment, no rent and no family politcs involved. She sold herself well.
Meanwhile my gf keeps her 40k taiwanese job, and being wit mummy, babi for most of weekends. Now she “can not find” a job in eu for a year or what, u know why… cause is hard to get a job in eu. Yea i agree, is harder to get a job in EU…so you gotta prepare yourself more and work on your strategy hard. But jobs here are way better than working for taiwanese boss… is all about how you market yourself, and what experience you build up.
Yea they totally earned 30k twd per month.
