Isolated from much of the world, Taiwan is forced to make friends in the wrong places

Most Taiwanese business are ruthless business owner treating employees like slavery and cheap labors including some home owners treat employees (beating, rape, work 7 day per week, to maid and baby sitters) like slave with abuse similar to Swaziland. Taiwanese treat Asian (Filipino, Chinese, Indonesian, etc) like second class citizens while treating Japanese, African, Caucasian friend like human or king.

Some Taiwanese people said China have bad human rights record So does Taiwan but never mention in foreign (Asia, US, Europe, Africa) News. I known some Asian friend's family member work for Taiwanese home owners where owner treat them like slave (overwork, underpaid, beating) as a maid or baby sitter.

Taiwanese government is corrupted too in record look at former Chen Shui Bian.

Swaziland and Tawain are friend with same mind (beating, cheap labor, Slavery, Inhumanity, etc) of Greed.

Having been to Taiwan on several occasions, I concur.
It's a strange place. Sadly the people there are extremely nice. Plus, they are much more modern in their thinking than China.
Especially towards women and animals.

Thanks Cal for posting the Cain Nunns article from the GobalPost. Interesting read. Quite a motley crew of nations to be called "friends". Read and noted. Spam also flagged.

Taiwan is unquestionably a region of contradictions. They allow their people democratic rights, yet, treat them as slave labor.

These kind of countries all have unholy alliances. Who else wants to play in the sandbox with them?

It would be a good idea to keep a close eye on Taiwan and the questionable company they keep. Thanks Cal.
