Sorry you lost your job/income, but I don’t think the distinction between gold card holders and other ARC holders is remotely important here.
I have zero confidence that the government will do this given their past pettiness with these things, but I’d prefer they open the scheme to all A(P)RC holders who, say, filed tax returns for 2020, rather than excluding all foreigners by default then throwing a bone to the smallest group of foreigners again to show how generous Taiwan is. And by “all A(P)RC holders”, I also mean all the workers from ASEAN countries, which I guess is one of the main sticking points for the racist elements of the Taiwanese government.
Besides, it’s only NT$4000. That’s like, what, one-seventh of a month of minimum wage? It’s a joke.
I find it amusing how many news articles and how much hype I’ve seen about this scheme, like what denominations the government is thinking to issue the vouchers in and the silly “quintuple stimulus” name. You’d think they’re giving away free Range Rovers.
