Tainan City police arrested eight Indonesian women Tuesday who claimed they left their jobs because the employment conditions were different from what they had expected and wanted to go back to Indonesia and never want to come back to Taiwan .
The city’s second police precinct received a report that several foreign female workers were seen living in a sheet metal house in the city’s western district for over a month.
According to the police, the eight Indonesian women were originally employed in Taoyuan, Taichung and Tainan as caregivers. They told police they could not get used to the long hours as caregivers and said the pay was not as good as they had been led to believe.
Police assume that they received assistance from a third party and the case has been transferred to the National Immigration Agency (NIA) as the investigation continues. [FULL STORY]
