Filipinos welcome easing of Taipei-Manila tensions

Staff writer, with CNA

As of the end of June, there were 462,658 foreign workers in Taiwan, including about 87,000 from the Philippines.

Meanwhile, Philippine workers disagreed with recent remarks by the Philippines’ national men’s basketball coach, Chot Reyes, who said that workers from the Philippines had suffered a great deal of abuse in Taiwan.

There may be “a few” cases of workers suffering abuse at the hands of Taiwanese employers, but it is not a widespread problem, Bagos said.

Taganahan said that she believes physical abuse is rare, and most Filipinos in Taiwan have simply encountered aloofness since the shooting incident.
