In the 1990s, foreign migrant workers began to occupy the Taiwanese workforce under the government's new policy. Many indigenous labourers suffered from pay cuts; some even lost their jobs and were forced to return to their homelands, squeezing out a living on odd jobs feeling frustrated and powerless. Please Give Us a Job records their unheard voices against a backdrop of economic growth, and observes the rivalry and tension between foreign workers and indigenous labourers.
