News says

行政院長蘇貞昌表示,去年已符合紓困資格並申請填寫資料者,無需再申請。

The article on the CNA website says “教育學習業” are going to be included in this bailout. Does that include foreign cram school teachers?

Many local governments provide 勞工失業及其子女就學補助 Education Subsidies for the Child of Unemployed Labors.

If the eligibility is the same with MOL, foreign spouses of citizens are included.

It seems to be for schools, not directly for individual teachers.

Thanks for clarifying that for me.

The school will be able to apply for aid on the foreign teachers behalf?

I read something in one of those articles that the government will provide something like 20% of the workers salary up to 20k per month for the months of May and June.

Is that what this is in regards to?

I am not sure yet.

As for the support for company paying salary, foreigners were not included last time.

Q36 非本國籍勞工、建教生可以列入補貼的員工人數嗎?

一、政府政策為照顧本國籍勞工,外籍勞工不可列入補貼人數。
二、建教生如為本國籍人士且為公司全職勞工,有投保勞保、就業保險或勞退,且投保薪資大於基本工資,並且可以出具證明者,皆可列入計算。

Thanks for taking your time to provide additional information! Things aren’t looking good for foreign cram school teachers unfortunately.

Are foreigners (APRC, JFRV etc) that own businesses in Taiwan serving Taiwan, included?

Info

This could decimate the Buxiban industry. If lots of teachers aren’t getting paid for any period of time, if they don’t have any resources they will have no choice but to leave.

Then, there will be no teachers left. Not to be total jerk, but when this is all over would be a good time to come to Taiwan looking for a teaching job …

Note to self: Always have 3-6 months in expenses in emergency fund.
