In order to implement the policy of “strengthening social safety network”, we must rely on social workers to act as the promoters of social welfare services. In the next year, the Council of Indigenous Peoples would continue to promote the Indigenous Peoples Residence Center Plan and comprehensively inspect the working conditions and vocational safety of social workers. From 2020, the salary of social workers in the Center will be increased in an all-round way. The starting salary will be NT $34,916. In addition, the salary based on the service seniority can be up to NT $41,899. Furthermore, we would work with the Ministry of Health and Welfare to promote the institutionalization of social workers’ salaries, comprehensively review the work contents of social workers, avoid the situation of unequal pay for the same work, consider the remote location of the indigenous villages, the higher traffic safety and cost compared with the general social workers, and raise the work risk subsidy to NT $1,500, so as to substantially take care of each social worker in the Center.
In addition, the promotion of social work required the concerted efforts of the public and private sectors. In order to encourage and train private organizations to invest in the social welfare related matters of the Indigenous Peoples, the employer would be given full subsidies for the labor and health insurance premiums that should be borne by the employer and the provision for pension reserves in order to reduce the financial burden.
The Council adhered to providing welfare services that were appropriate, mutual, diverse, immediate, and integrated for indigenous people, and promoted the local welfare service system of the Indigenous Peoples with cultural context and regional differences. The Council hoped to lead non-governmental organizations to pay attention to the labor rights and interests of social workers through policies, establish a full-time and long-term workplace environment, inherit professional practical experience, and make social workers eager to provide services, so as to protect the social welfare rights of indigenous people. It was hoped that in the future, it would be more sustainable to promote the issue of tribal social welfare, stabilize the tribal support system and build a social safety network.
