Abstract: Abstract:This research explores Taiwanese seafarers’ dilemma concerning employment conditions. To gain a thorough understanding, one of the authors boarded a Taiwanese container vessel to sail with a mixed national crew for twenty days. The author investigated the perceptions and reflections of Taiwanese seafarers toward their current employment conditions through interviewing crewmembers and on-the-spot observations. Results revealed that the recruitment of Taiwanese seafarers has been affected seriously by the global competition of the shipping industry and certain domestic circumstantial factors. This study also identified two main factors, i.e. the diminishing recruitment opportunity and the low incentive to enter seafaring, contributing to the deterioration of Taiwanese seafarers’ employment conditions. In addition, we found that most Taiwanese seafarers were eager for a seafaring policy to protect their employment security as well as to improve their well-beings.
