【看英文中國郵報學英文】根據週二104人力銀行調查指出,若2020年政府決定如期調漲薪資,將導致84%台灣企業的人事支出升高

 If the government decides to raise the minimum wage in 2020 as expected, 84 percent of Taiwan’s enterprises will see their personnel costs go up, according to a survey released Tuesday by the 104 job bank.

勞動部基本工資審議委員會將於週三決定是否調高臺灣基本薪資。目前的基本薪資為每月台幣23,100元,而兼職的平均時薪則是台幣150元。

The Basic Wage Deliberation Committee of the Ministry of Labor is scheduled to meet Wednesday to decide whether to raise Taiwan’s minimum wage, which currently stands at NT$23,100 (US$748) per month or NT$150 per hour for part-time workers.

然而,許多台灣勞工團體提議在審議委員會年度審查最低薪資之前,將2020年基本薪資提高至少5%。

Several labor groups in Taiwan have proposed increasing it by at least 5 percent in 2020 ahead of the annual minimum wage review by the committee.

在審議過後,委員會將把提案交給行政院,若行政院通過,薪資調整將於明年初正式生效。

The committee will make a recommendation to the Cabinet, and if accepted it would take effect at the start of next year.

根據104人力銀行調查,有84%的民眾認為薪資調漲同時也代表更高的支出; 然而,有66.9%民眾認為薪資調漲並不會影響新人招募,24.1%的民眾則認為會影響雇用新員工。

Though 84 percent of respondents in the 104 job bank survey said a higher minimum wage would mean higher costs, 66.9 percent said it would not deter them from recruiting new workers, while 24.1 percent said it would.

對此,人力銀行總經理黃于純表示,薪資調漲對於有較大人力需求的行業衝擊較大,例如:食品業、文化教育產業及製造業。

According to Joanna Huang (黃于純), general manager of 104 job bank, a higher minimum wage would have the biggest impact on the food and beverage sector, cultural and education businesses, and manufacturers that hire large numbers of migrant workers.

問及調高薪資會有什麼正面影響,雇主表示,這將幫助員工應付更高的消費支出,也讓更多人願意去找工作,並讓雇主與員工共享收益。

When asked what the positive effects of a minimum wage hike might be, employers said it would help employees cope with higher consumer prices,make people more willing to look for a job, and get employers to share benefits with employees.

另一方面,企業也列出了薪資調漲造成的負面影響,其中包括薪資調升對於台灣低薪環境並沒有什麼幫助,反而帶給企業更高營運及人事成本的壓力。

The negative effects cited by businesses included that it would be unhelpful in improving Taiwan’s low salary environment and that it would put businesses under pressure from higher operating costs and higher labor costs.

此次的調查報告為8月7日至8月8日,共1229人參與調查,在95%的信心水準下,抽樣誤差為正負2.78百分點。
