Vietnamese Beauty Queen Helps Promote Illegal Agency 前越南選美皇后助拍片 共17人移送裁處

There are more than 60,000 undocumented migrant workers in Taiwan. A special task force from the National Immigration Agency in Kaohsiung found an illegal migrant worker agency operated by a Vietnamese migrant worker. A total of 17 people have to taken to the Labor Affairs Bureau for violating the Employment Service Act.


The special task force rushed up to subdue the person. Some others were found hiding in the farmland. They are all illegal migrant workers from Vietnam and were members of an illegal agricultural and industrial workers agency set up by an illegal immigrant known as A-Shen who stayed in Taiwan. These workers were introduced by the agency to work in Kaohsiung, Yunlin, and other places and harvest cabbage, corn, as well as fertilize and spray pesticides.

Yuan Kai, Deputy Captain, Kaohsiung Special Task Force, NIA: “A-Shen illegally engaged in agricultural work in the Yunlin area, with an average monthly income of NT$30,000. He also contacted relatives and friends, whom are legal migrant workers in Taiwan, to work illegally and split the rent. And to expand their work territory to other counties and cities.”

The group has been established for almost a year and has attracted 9 illegal immigrants to join. Some of them were legal migrant workers before. Others joined after watching propaganda videos from internet celebrities. 

“This is cabbage seed.”This naturalized new Vietnamese immigrant used to be a beauty queen in Vietnam and runs her own YouTube channel. She learned about this agency and helped to promote them. However, she did not know her actions violated the law.

Yuan Kai, Deputy Captain, Kaohsiung Special Task Force, NIA: “Vietnamese get married and come to Taiwan. The YouTuber, beauty queen Pei Pei, is a naturalized citizen. She learned that A-Shen was providing a free work agency service so she decided to help out by making a video.”

A-Shen said that he did not receive any agency fees from introducing other migrant workers. However, both the online influencer and A-Shen had violated the Employment Service Act and were transferred to the local government labor bureau. The special task force also reminded everyone that hiring unidentified foreigners to work illegally will result in a fine of NT$150,000 to NT$750,000, and a maximum fine of NT$500,000 for introducing illegal migrant workers to work.

 

 

 

專勤隊將人壓制,還有人躲往農田被發現,他們都是越南籍非法移工,是化名阿伸的非法滯台人士成立的非法仲介農工集團成員,被介紹到高雄、雲林等地採收從事高麗菜、玉米還有施肥及噴農藥等工作。

移民署高雄專勤隊副隊長袁愷說:「(阿伸)在雲林一帶非法從事農工,平均月入新台幣3萬元,還聯繫在台合法移工親友,相約一起非法打工、分擔房租,拓展版圖到他縣市工作。」

集團成立時間快1年,吸引9名非法外來人口加入,有人是合法轉為黑工,還有人是看網紅宣傳影片加入。

「這個就是高麗菜籽。」這名已經歸化的越南籍新住民,從前是越南選美皇后,經營自己專屬YouTube頻道,得知有這集團幫忙拍片宣傳,卻不知道已經觸法。

袁愷表示,「越南結婚來台已歸化的YouTube頻道網紅,選美皇后珮珮,因緣際會得知阿伸有工作管道,可免費提供仲介服務,就相約前往拍片助陣。」

阿伸說加入的同鄉他沒有收取仲介費,但網紅跟阿伸的行為都已觸法,被依違反《就業服務法》移請地方政府勞工局裁處。專勤隊也提醒,僱用不明的外來人口非法工作,處15萬元到75萬元罰鍰,仲介外國人工作最高罰50萬元,若有營利還可能涉及刑法。
