FACTORY JOBS IN Taiwan 2023
The number of Filipino workers is expected to rise by twenty thousand in the next few months. This is because a lot of factories have started hiring people and increasing the production rates for the new year. As well as this, quality issues are starting to become a problem. In addition, a Chinese New Year is coming up and some workers will have to be disrupted.
Average salary range for a production worker
The Taiwanese economy has a high-tech, industrialized Asian character, ranking it as one of the top 25 economies in the world. However, Taiwan faces the competition of cheaper China and struggles to prosper as a trade and manufacturing hub.
Taiwan’s GDP is expected to increase by 3.3% in 2022. In nominal terms, the average salary in the country is predicted to rise by 4.0% in 2023.
SALARY AND BENEFITS
This average salary level is based on a survey of Taiwanese workers conducted by 104 Job Bank in 2016. The results of the survey show that the average total pay will be NT$677,000 in 2022.
Among the highest paying sectors are the semiconductor industry and the computer and consumer electronics sector. These industries compete for talent, offering higher salaries.
One of the key factors determining an income is the experience level of the employee. Workers with more than five years of experience can enjoy a 36% pay boost. Employees with a master’s degree enjoy a 29% pay increase.
Chinese New Year disruptions
If you are in the business of manufacturing goods, Chinese New Year is probably going to cause disruptions. It’s a seven day holiday, but the timing can vary from year to year.
One of the reasons for this is that factories need time to ramp up production before CNY. This could mean hiring more workers. Whether you are importing or manufacturing products, you are likely to be charged more for any orders you receive in the weeks leading up to the holiday.
Another reason for this is that factories are usually on a mad dash to get orders out the door before the big day. They might even hire inexperienced workers. That could translate to lower quality products.
There are a few other factors to consider in scheduling your factory during the Chinese New Year. First, you need to be prepared for shipping space shortages. Secondly, you need to make sure your materials are in place in warehouses or on ships so they are ready to go when they arrive.
Increasing quality issues after the Chinese New Year
If you’re a business owner who works with factories in Taiwan, you’ve probably heard that the Chinese New Year is coming up soon. It’s the most important holiday for the Chinese and it’s a time for families to come together.
However, this holiday can be stressful for businesses. In addition to causing supply chain disruptions, Chinese New Year can lead to increased quality issues and longer production delays.
Fortunately, there are some things you can do to avoid the most common problems. For one, you should start thinking about your production schedule well before you receive your first order. You should also plan for possible travel delays, the cost of shipping, and the length of your supplier’s supply chain.
Similarly, you should be able to find out if your inventory can be moved to avoid a potential production hold-up. Having all materials and goods in one location reduces the risk of a shipment being delayed.
20,000 more Filipino workers expected to be hired by FEBRUARY
The Philippines is a southeast Asian nation that lies between the South China Sea and the Pacific Ocean. It is known for its beautiful beaches and a variety of flora and fauna. However, the country is also prone to natural disasters, such as typhoons and earthquakes. A record-breaking typhoon hit the island in December of last year, leaving many Filipinos homeless.
After the storm, Catholic Relief Services began helping families in the area resettle and rebuild their homes. CRS is working with local partners to help the Filipino community rehabilitate and recover. They are building emergency shelters and teaching families how to build resilience in the face of disasters.
Among the areas CRS works in the Philippines are agro-enterprise development, peacebuilding, agro-environmental protection, and disaster response. During the Haiyan relief and rebuilding effort, a new community was built for 900 families in Anibong.
Typhoon Haiyan destroyed the town of Anibong. Residents lost their lives and their homes. The community remains dangerous, with no running water and no toilets.
