移動人權線上論壇:「《折翼驛鄉》受刑漁工望不見的歸途」Webinars Meeting: Imprisoned in a Foreign Land: Jailed Migrant Fishermen' Dimmed Hope of Returning Home

在台灣,來自東南亞的藍領移工,依聘僱職業別可分為產業型及社福型移工,人數約莫有70萬人,年齡落在25歲至44歲之間。這群處於青壯年的東南亞勞動人力,已是支撐台灣漁業、基礎建設、中小型企業,以及高齡少子化社會的長照工作的最主要勞動者。


線上講座簡介:

TIWA台灣國際勞工協會長期訪視移工受刑人,從一開始2013年特宏興368號喋血案件判刑定讞的六名漁工,到後來愈來愈多的受刑人,發現其中有許多人都是漁工。究竟是怎樣的處境,讓為了改善生活困境而遠赴他國的異鄉勞動者犯下不可挽救的錯誤?外籍聘僱漁工因聘僱途徑不同,勞動權益及待遇有著天壤之別。貧困雖是所有移工踏上航程的主因,但貧窮卻再劃分了等級,處於更底層的移工只好選擇聘僱門檻低卻高風險的境外聘僱途徑,踏上工時長、暴力威脅環伺及飽受剝削的遠洋漁船。

Instruction:

Taiwan International Workers' Association (TIWA) is an organization which regularly pays visits to imprisoned migrant workers. As more than two thirds of foreign prisoners in Taiwan are migrant fishermen who supposedly sought to make a better life by working overseas, what exactly did they face and later on pushed them to make irreparable mistakes? As migrant fishermen are hired through a different channel, their labor rights and how they are treated are drastically different from those of the domestic workers. While poverty is the main reason that drive all migrant workers into the fishing voyage, the state of poverty also comes with different levels. Those who are even more impoverished have no choice but to resort to overseas employment by Taiwanese fishing operators, an option with low entry level but high risks. And soon they would find themselves on distant fishing vessels working long hours, constantly under threats of violence and ruthless exploitation.

Speaker:

Hsu Chun-huai, Taiwan International Workers' Association (TIWA). Hsu Chun-huai (also known as Camel) comes from Kaohsiung and has been living in Taipei for a long time. Hsu is not swimmer and the sea is never a part of his life. However, via his visits to the prisoners, he has come to known a group of people whose livelihood has depended on the sea most of their lives at the expense of their freedom eventually. Hsu has become a staff member of TIWA since 2015 and is responsible for handling labor disputes of migrant workers, developing migrant workers' organizations, and policy research and advocacy.
