Official policies create low wages

By Huang Yi-chuan 黃義銓

There is good reason why Ma’s approval rate has fallen to a low of 9.2 percent. If the Ma administration is unwilling to reflect on its own performance, if it keeps on trying to push through the cross-strait service trade agreement and lock Taiwan even more tightly into China’s economic sphere, and if Taiwanese go on doing little or nothing to salvage their own situation, then there will not be much hope of evading a miserable fate for the nation.

Huang Yi-chuan is an adjunct assistant professor living in Greater Taichung.
