« Taiwans migrants workers protest march in Taipei City ».

Thousands of migrants workers marched on April 30, 2017 in Taipei City urging the Taiwan government to take up the role of a moderator between migrant workers and employers. Protesters call for the current private employment brokerage system to be replaced by a direct country-to-country hiring system. They also called for Article 53 of the Employment Service Act to be scrapped to allow foreign workers to freely transfer between employers. According to the organizers, the current law forces workers to accept mistreatment until their contracts expire.
