In the letter, the Filipino workers are asking their government to allow its nationals to come to Taiwan, especially those who have existing contracts, according to the news outlet. They express their concern that the Philippines' travel restrictions on Taiwan may prevent some of them from complying with their contracts, as many are currently home for vacation.
The news outlet cited Jack Cheng, a senior I-Mei adviser, as saying that I-Mei only hires Filipino workers and has no other foreign employees; therefore, the travel ban would have a massive effect on the company. The problem would be felt especially in the area of new hires.
"If Filipinos cannot come to Taiwan, it's going to cause problems not only for I-MEI Foods, but for many other companies here in Taiwan," he was cited as saying. [FULL STORY]
