選舉是一個國家政府開啟新篇章的契機。身為人民,希望新政府的上台能帶來新氣象。

2016年1月,台灣將選出新總統,這將是一個台灣改變的機會,讓4年之後的台灣能夠更好。台灣僱用許多來自亞洲其他國家的移民工,例如菲律賓、越南、泰國和印尼。這次選舉不僅對台灣社會有意義,我們作為在此居住多年的移民工,也間接成為台灣公民的一部分。

當然,我們作為移民工,期望政府能提出改善移民工福利的方案。我身為來自印尼的看護工,從工作中收集諸多來自印尼移民工的意見,包括非正規(看護)以及正規勞工(工廠勞工),也從社群媒體上搜集意見。印尼移民工受訪者,每個人都有不同的願望,但都是從工人福利出發。其中有:

-  每個月至少能有固定一天休假(看護工);

-  爭取讓移工能在重要宗教節日放假;

-  允許穆斯林移工能戴上頭巾工作;

-  保障移民工宗教崇拜的自由;

-  加強對移民工的保護;

-  壓迫移民工的機構,應受到法律制裁;

-  讓移民工與台灣工人同工同酬。

這是我們印尼移民工的願望。我們間接參與了台灣的進步,並成為台灣社會的一份子,希望我們的聲音能被聽到。由此,我們能夠在台灣達到和平共生。

An election means a new chapter for a government in a country. A means are also include aspiration for citizens to be released by new government when elected. As we know beginning in January 2016 Taiwan will hold an election for a new president that will be a leadership for change Taiwan to be a better for 4 years later. Taiwan as a country who employed labor migrants from other countries in Asia such as Filipina, Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia. Generally this election not only for Taiwan society, but as a labor migrants we indirectly also become part of the Taiwan publics for a few year later. And of course, we as labor migrants has aspirations and expect the best programs from the elected government especially related the rules for the labor migrants welfare. I as migrant worker from Indonesia trying to gather opinions from Indonesia fellow workers at the informal(caretaker) and formal (manufacturer) sector via social media and who I met randomly on the schedule of my job as caretaker. From the Indonesian migrant worker respondents, everyone have the different aspiration but the view point is for the worker welfare. Among them are: - Get the day-off schedule once a month (for informal sector) - Be the national holiday for migrant workers on their religion big day. - Allowing women Muslim workers to wear hijab when work. - Guarantee the freedom of migrant workers to worship according their religion. - Increase the protection for migrant workers. - Give sanction for agencies who oppressive migrant workers. - Equivalent of salary between migrant workers with domestic workers. That's our aspirations as Indonesian migrant workers who indirectly participate in the Taiwan progress and become part of the society in Taiwan to be heard and released. So it could be a symbiotic mutualism for Taiwan and other countries.
