Do we know the actual wording on the laws on discrimination? I am interested to know what Taiwanese companies are required to reform.
Go with one of us to Costco and stand in line behind us and listen to what they say when we ask to fill out a credit card application.
Watch how other companies standing near the exits of their stores offer all Taiwanese passing by the opportunity to fill out a credit card application and then see them pull the clipboard back in horror as one of us goes to ask to fill out an application.
I personally enjoy not having the correct “status” in this sense. Unless I am with my local friends or wife, I don’t get harassed by people handing out leaflets or other things.
There are days I feel pissed that I am not treated the same or even ignored by people who assume I don’t read / speak Chinese, but when I want to be left alone I am allowed to be left alone mostly (in Taipei, that is).
