摘要

This paper deals with the formation of the working class in Taiwan since 1949. It looks at key factors which shaped class formation, including the rapid and massive proliferation of small industrial enterprises and the decentralized nature of rural manufacturing. It examines the early signs of class conflict in the industrialization process with the formation of independent labour unions but also the reason why these labour unions failed to organize as effectively as might have been expected give the profound industrial transformation of the country. It also surveys the use to foreign labour in the economy and its position in relation to the small independent labour movement.
