workers have gone to China to work, according to Taiwan News. Other affected industries include business management and technical personnel.

A 2016 survey conducted by Business Weekly shows: 62 percent of Taiwanese aged 20 to 35 plan to work abroad; 89 percent of these young adults say that the low salaries in Taiwan are what drive them to leave the country; 76 percent of the subjects think Taiwan does not provide enough opportunities for young people and that working abroad can improve their resumes.

On average, countries such as the U.K. and the U.S. offer salaries 2.5 times more than Taiwan, while Japan and Singapore offer 2.4 times more, China 2.3 times, and ASEAN countries 2.2 times.   [SOURCE]
