TAIPEI, Taiwan — University graduates seeking work expect to earn an average of
NT$31,284 a month, 0.8 percent less than what they expected last year, according to a survey released on Sunday.
Online job bank yes123’s found that monthly wage expectations this year were down by NT$254 year-on-year.
For job bank spokesperson Yang Tsung-pin (楊宗斌), the latest survey raises concern that NT$30,000 will become a ceiling of sorts for fresh college graduates, dissuading them from negotiating for better wages.
“For fresh graduates entering the workforce for the first time, (the survey) shows that they’re not holding high expectations to get higher wages.” [FULL STORY]
