Nearly 80 percent of Taiwan’s workers want to change jobs before the Lunar New Year, and
they hope to see their salary increase by nearly NT$8,000 (US$244) a month, according to the results of survey by an online recruiting firm released Tuesday.
The survey found that two months ahead of the Lunar New Year, which falls on Feb. 8, 2016, 78.6 percent of respondents have considered changing jobs, up 7.3 percentage points from the previous year and the highest percentage since the financial crisis eight years ago.
Of those, just over three quarters said they have taken action by sending out their resumes.
The reasons cited for wanting to change jobs included low salary (40.3%), no chance of promotion (30.9 percent), the employer’s lack of future prospects (30.5 percent), dissatisfaction with the job (28.2 percent), and no raises for too long (26.8 percent). [FULL STORY]
