      In light of Taiwan passing the new law to attract more foreign professionals, we are now eligible for inclusion in Taiwan’s labor pension system, and upon retirement, have the option of either a lump-sum payment or a monthly pension. http://m.focustaiwan.tw/news/aeco/201710310018.aspx

      As far as I’m aware, most, if not all teachers, currently don’t receive anything.

      That’s the thing, are buxiban teachers regarded as white-collar workers?

      I guess they technically should be, but I doubt this is what the government is trying to encourage. There are plenty of buxiban teachers and some aren’t exactly qualified teachers.

      They are probably looking to attract people from other professions. But unless decent salaries are offered they won’t attract people from the types of professions they want.

      I know some teachers get it, and some don’t. – I’m not sure if it’s a ‘don’t ask – don’t get basis’, but also perhaps down to the discretion of the schools?

      Yes, you are right, Laura.

      From what I’ve seen with my friends working in different schools, (even different branches) it literally depends on discretion of the head manager of the school branch.
