As a labor-surplus nation, Indonesia continues to send migrant workers abroad. State failure to allocate jobs for Indonesian job seekers is why migrant workers are moving abroad. As a result of the country being unable to provide jobs, migrant workers find their way to solve the poverty problems. Working abroad with a good salary will be best suited to cope with their family from poverty, no matter how much the cost will be. Taiwan is one of the most attractive country destinations for Indonesian due to Indonesian migrant workers' requirements in Taiwan are among the highest compared to other Asia Pacific placement countries (Syarizka, 2018). Indonesian migrant workers come to Taiwan in search of a job, usually unskilled job positions. Other reasons for the entry of that country are agreements with Taiwan (Taiwan News, 2018), a high salary, and security reasons (Republika, 2014).
