Solving The Problem of Indonesian Migrant Workers In Taiwan: An Analysis of Indonesian Government Response
The problems faced by Indonesian Migrant Workers (PMI) in Taiwan, there are still several problems such as unpaid salaries, work accidents, Indonesian Migrant Workers repatriation, sexual harassment, abuse, and illegal/runaway Indonesian Migrant Workers. This problem has prompted Indonesia and Taiwan to renew the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two countries to resolve Indonesian Migrant Worker problems. There are 3 (three) ways to solve the problem, namely conducting Indonesia-Taiwan cooperation, recruiting/re-collecting Indonesian Migrant Worker' data, and protecting Indonesian Migrant Workers. These efforts have been made since the reforms in 2018; this is because previous actions did not go well; therefore, the two countries agreed again so that Indonesian Migrant Workers in Taiwan get protection and the problem can be resolved quickly. Then, after the cooperation renewal, the issues experienced by Indonesian Migrant Workers in Taiwan in 2020 were determined with a percentage of 83.3%. It means Indonesia has succeeded in resolving the Indonesian Migrant Workers problem with the efforts that have been agreed upon by Taiwan.
