Taiwan’s Ministry of Science and Technology has abolished a rigid pay scale system for entry and low-level skilled workers.

Under the system, skilled workers such as research assistants are paid according to their educational levels and seniority. There is also a minimum wage and a price ceiling too.

Until now, the system has been used by government agencies, research bodies as well as public and private academic institutions as payroll guidelines since 2005.

Minster Chen Liang-gee said on Monday that it is professionalism and meeting job requirements, rather than educational background, which should be taken into consideration.    [FULL  STORY]
