Over 40% of new immigrants in Taiwan are looking for jobs

According to a research report, over 40 percent of the new immigrants have to get a full time job to support their family, and 50 percent of them lack confidence in getting one, and hope to gain it back by learning new skills. However, due to the language barrier and a lack of professional skills, new immigrants face many difficulties getting a job.

The Taichung-Changhua-Nantou region Workforce Development Agency said that employment training will be tailor-made and boost the employment rate to 70 percent, enabling them to get hired after the training. The training course will be free and each of the students will get an extra bonus of 60 percent of the minimum wage as allowance. The employers will also get government subsidies if they hire the students from the employment training program.
