Migrant worker protest in Taiwan for fairer wages

A group of activists and migrant workers protested in Taipei on March 12 urging the government to meet Indonesian demands for better treatment of its workers in Taiwan. More than 30 protesters from Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines and Thailand demonstrated outside the Legislative Yuan, holding placards emblazoned with the word “anti-slavery” and shouting slogans such as “minimum wage for all.” Some of the protesters chained themselves together and wore signs that read “slaves” on their clothes to protest long working hours and unfairly low wages.
