If they require an FBI background check, which is a major hassle to have done, I predict a sharp drop in Americans applying for ESL jobs here. What are these bureaucrats thinking? A Taiwanese cram school teacher has sex with a student, allegedly resulting in her suicide. I know, let's scapegoat those pesky foreign English teachers! They're a small and powerless group, so we can win cheap political points with no repercussions.
And then, in the near future when the industry starts having trouble recruiting the teachers it needs, those same bureaucrats will start scratching their heads. Taiwan has so much to offer and provides such a great working environment, why aren't those pesky foreigners beating down the door to come teach here?
