A report by 104 Job Bank concludes:

Wages for first-time jobseekers with a college degree have fallen by roughly 10 percent over the past 13 years, according to a report by 104 Job Bank.

The report, released on Wednesday, says that between 2000 and 2013, the average wage for new jobseekers fell about 10 percent to about NT$30,000.

During the same period, consumer prices rose about 10 percent, the recruitment agency said. Rising consumer prices have prompted many employees to ask the government to rein in prices so living standards do not decline, it said.

More evidence that having a college degree from a shitty university is simply not worth the paper it's written on. When will students wise up and see that they are just being sold a fake product that will not land them a lucrative job but rather a mountain of debt that they'll never pay off.

10 labor groups gathered at the Ministry of Labor yesterday to demand better rights for workers and improved welfare. The Labor Day protesters also raised signs that read “low wages is a national shame.”
