Taipei Railroad Station January 16, 2017

No chairs. No benches. Everyone gets to sit on the floor.


About 10 times more people congregate here than those on a werkday. It comes as a total surprise to me to see so many people sitting on the floor. These people form small groups, chat with each other,  play games, check their cellphones and eat their lunches on the floor. This unique scene may only happen in the winter time or on raining days because there are other places these people can go.

Taiwan employs many foreign workers in the long term health care industry because Taiwan’s labor market is tight and no young person with an ounce of pride want to do this. Most of these people are foreigners and, according to government information, they came from Phillippine and Indonesia.

Next time when you take the regular train or high speed rail from the Taipei Station, check it out.
