TAIPEI, Taiwan — President Tsai Ing-wen’s administration vowed to continue improving
working conditions, after the U.S. State Department criticized Taiwan over its exploitation of and discrimination against migrant workers.
The 2016 “Country Reports on Human Rights Practices,” released March 3, highlighted Taiwan’s exploitation of foreign workers.
In particular, it identified caregivers and foreign crew members on long-haul fishing vessels as Taiwan’s biggest human rights challenge.
The report said such workers were often victims of domestic violence and corruption.
