Former Council of Labor Affairs minister Jennifer Wang was met with massive
protests from labor activists as she made her way to the Central Election Commission to register her name as Kuomintang presidential candidate Eric Chu’s running mate, reports said Monday.
“Come out and face us!” a female member of the National Alliance for Workers of Closed Factories shouted outside the CEC building, criticizing Wang for not standing up for the nation’s female laborers.
Wang had previously hired a large team of lawyers and budgeted more than NT$25 million to file lawsuits against workers, while making controversial comments, including one about the reasonableness of a NT$22,000 monthly salary. [FULL STORY]
