“Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Lin Shu-fen (林淑芬) challenged premier Lai during a meeting with party lawmakers on Wednesday over the amendment’s proposal to allow some businesses to lower the minimum rest time between shifts from 11 hours to eight, the Chinese-language Apple Daily reported.
Lin said that workers would not be able to get a proper break, as the eight hours also include commuting and meal time.
Lai reportedly told Lin that travel time and meal time are not work and that her criticism of the proposed amendment was based on non typical working conditions, the report said, adding that Lai asked her not to openly criticize government officials longer than is needed.”
