Why are the Taiwanese workers of today hyper-focused on Mainland China? Is it inevitable or a bad bias to be overcome/?

TAIWANESE ARE MORE INTERESTED IN WORKING IN CHINA THAN IN PUSHING FOR REFORM AND INVESTMENT AT HOME IN TERMS OF POSITIVE DEVELOPMENTS

 

By Kevin Stoda, Taiwan

 

In lieu of staying at home and rebuilding poor housing infrastructure and improving vocational training, workplace problems, and the society, many Taiwanese have their sights on Mainland China as a workplace they would like to explore in the coming years.

 

According to the TAIWAN NEWS ( May 27, 20110 , in an article entitled ¡§China becomes a hot destination for Taiwan¡¦s workers: Poll¡¨, 77 percent of Taiwanese employees are willing to explore further job opportunities on the mainland [People¡¦s Republic or communist China].¡¨

 

On the one hand, the Taiwan News article continues, ¡§statististics indicate that the annual salaries of 74.2 percent ofemployees are higher after they work in China..¡¨   In fact, ¡§Their average annual income increases by NT$370,000 (US$12,758).¡¨

 

NOTE:   I wonder who undertook this unnamed poll because the article seems to be spun towards a PRO-unification and AT-ALL-COST friendly relations with China.   The current majority party in Taiwan (Republic of China), the KMT, has historically been supportive of unification as soon as possible with the Mainland.  

 

On the other hand,   I would imagine that the averag employee who has worked abroad in any foreign country can demand more earnings in Taiwan these days.

 

Nonetheless, this unnamed poll states that 69.8% of the respondents are interested in looking for work in Shanghai while 34% desire to work in Beijing.   Other regions of interest for work abroad by the majority of Taiwanese include Hong Kong, Ziamen, and Suzhou.
