AVERAGE YEARLY SALARY IN TAIWAN RISES TO NT$641,000 DESPITE PANDEMIC

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A survey by Taiwan's top job hunting website has found that the average annual salary increased to NT$641,000 (US$22,400) as Taiwan was able to quickly contain the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak and post modest economic growth this year.On Tuesday (Nov. 10), 104 Job Bank presented the results of a survey on its Facebook page showing that the average annual salary in Taiwan reached NT$641,000 in 2020, an increase of NT$5,000 over last year. Blue-collar and grey-collar workers saw a larger pay increase than white-collar workers this year.However, this only represented a 0.7 percent increase over the previous year, marking the third year in a row of relatively "stagnant" wage growth, according to the report. Wages in the construction sector outperformed the average with construction supervisors at the top of the list in the industry at NT$1.072 million per year.In second place was Field Application Engineers (FAE) at NT$793,000, followed by site supervisors/directors at NT$718,000, construction engineers at NT$658,000, business support engineers at NT$656,000, and hydropower engineers at NT$650,000.In addition, this year's overall wage adjustment rate is 2.9 percent, which is the first time it has dropped below 3 percent over the past five years. The wage adjustment rate for all four major industries in Taiwan, including knowledge-intensive services, electronics manufacturing, general services, and traditional manufacturing, have all seen lower pay raises this year.By Keoni Everington, Taiwan News, Staff Writer2020/11/11 17:55 (ICE TAIPEI)
