This is an article in the China Post regarding the government response to the 5% unemployment in Taiwan:
Is this going to affect those workers coming from developed western countries? Foreign spouses? Furthermore, such a policy could only lead to further economic turmoil, which will inevitably lead to less jobs, anyway. It’s kind of a catch-22, I guess, but haven’t there been enough examples in the rest of the world to prove that economic prosperity creates jobs, not more regulation and bureaucracy?
It’s obviously a purely political move, and most of the unemployed probably aren’t intelligent enough to see through it. It’ll just make everybody “feel” better. But, hey, that’s the government’s job, I guess. Just the same, how do you feel about this, and what are your opinions?
