Agreed. Taiwan is a horrible place to be employed.
However, it’s a great place to start a company. Lots of skilled and talented people, who are cheap and hard-working. If you pay 20-30% above market rate, they will stick with you.
Especially for people in industries like software, there is little reason to suffer as an employee. Start a company, build a team, and build products for companies in Silicon Valley, where engineering talent is valued.
