That’s the problem with Taiwan’s labor laws. If the government actively discourages unions or guilds, as they have always done, then the government should go for a hard regulation on rest days, at least the first DPP amendment is acceptable.
If the government actively encourages unions or guilds, then the second DPP amendment isn’t all that bad.
With the first amendment, the correct course of action is to raise the minimum wage so that the workers can now get by without taking overtime if the owner does not wish to pay them at a premium for overtime.
With the second amendment, the correct course of action is to actively encourage unions and guilds by amending the union act. Every worker in the same industry should join the union of that industry and have a penalty for those who refuse to join. Also have a penalty for those industries who hire workers not in the union. Then give union leaders a stake in the company’s decision making.
If they simply make the laws and do nothing to solve the real underlying issues, they are just opening up a world of hurt for the laborers.
