Taiwan brokers get big pie from recruitment fees of Pinoys

By Yolanda Sotelo

URDANETA CITY – This could sound like its in the Philippines: The placement fee for employment in Taiwan is high because P50,000 each recruit is paid to the brokers who have a list of job openings and controls which recruitment agencies should get the list, according to Manila Economic and Cultural Officer Amadeo Perez Jr.
Perez said the placement fees paid by Filipino workers go to about P100,000 each, with the P50,000 spent for visa, administrative charges and air fare by the local recruiters, but the other P50,000 go directly to the brokers.
He said the Taiwan law allows the brokers to operate and that they have licenses. “But they are supposed to get P1,800 only per recruit and the the P50,000 is an under the table transaction,” he said.
Filipino recruiters need to have a tie-up with the brokers to get a list of job placement, Perez told reporters during a media forum of the Pangasinan Press Club.
We have a nasty suspicion which we cannot prove though, that the brokers have tie-up with the presidents and officials of the different corporations and we have noticed that the brokers are relatives of Taiwanese officials. That we have to hurdle as far as recruitment is concerned,” Perez said. (more…)

EDITORIAL : TPLEx plus Villasis to Sison Road not enough?

There is Chinese proverb that says, “To get rich, build roads first.”

The presence of road infrastructure is essential for investment and job creation which are necessary to reduce poverty in the Pangasinan as it becomes a kind of catalyst for inviting trade commerce and tourism in the province.

The Pangasinan stretch (Villasis to Sison) of the Manila North Road is undergoing road improvement activities.

The major activity is road widening to accommodate more vehicles.

The other activity is the cutting of mature trees.

The Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEx) is under construction too.

How many trees will be cut along TPLEx? (more…)

CORTEZ: Bakit nga ba pabor daw ang ABS CBN sa prosecution?

FOR THE PROSECUTION! Alam niyo kung bakit daw biased ang ABS CBN para sa prosecution? BOK NANI BRAGANZA ng Alaminos City, Pangsinan, kumusta na po kayo?

Alam niyo po ba na ang nagbalita sa akin ng cabinet reshuffle ay nagsabi rin sa akin na Gov na daw ang tawag ng ibang taga-Liberal Party sa iyo?

Parang bombay ang dating ng GovNani! hahaha

Una daw ay nabuhay ang ABS CBN at naibalik sa mga Lopez just after ng EDSA 1 kung saan ang naging president ng Pilipinas ay si Cory Aquino (mother ni PNoy).

Pangalawa daw ay naibalik sa mga Lopez (may-ari ng ABS CBN) ang MERALCO. Ibig sabihin…naibalik ang kita ng Lopez sa kuryente.

Pangatlo daw ay natatandaan niyo pa ba ang alitan ni Willie Revillame at ni Kris Aquino? Mas malaki ang following ni Willie at malakas ang show niya pero siya ang natangal sa ABS CBN. Bakit kaya mas pinili ng ABS CBN si Kris?

Pang-apat daw ay iyong isinulat ni Niñez Cacho-Olivarez ng Daily Tribune ang relation ng ABS CBN sa prosecution panel. Opo, sumusuweldo sila sa ABS CBN tapos nagvolunteer daw sila para sa prosecution. “Five members of the prosecution panel, acting as private prosecutors for the trial are all high officials of the Lopez-owned ABS-CBN network. The five private prosecutors are Maximilian Uy — chief legal counsel, assistant corporate secretary; Mario Bautista — general counsel, legal services; Manuel Torres — corporate secretary; Maximilian Joseph Uy — legal services and assistant corporate secretary; and Enrique Quiason — assistant corporate secretary.” (more…)
