BUSINESS ENGLISH

A: The government says that since the average working time has decreased, it’s equal to getting paid 16.5 percent more.

B: That makes some sense, but I don’t feel the joy that goes with getting paid more.

A: Taiwanese work 20 percent more on average than both Americans and Japanese, and 35 percent more than Germans.

B: So, decreasing the work time is the only way to fix Taiwan’s overworking problem.

A:我們的政府說,勞工平均工時縮短後,等於加薪了16.5%。

B:這麼說是有點道理,但我並沒有感受到被加薪的快樂。

A:因為台灣勞工的平均工時比美國和日本高出20%,比德國更高出35%!

B:所以工時縮短,也只是舒緩台灣嚴重超時工作的現象而已。
