My girlfriend just said that she has no contract where her salary (or anything else) is written.
The context for this conversation: years ago she joinned a (crappy) company where they offered her 45,000 NTs/month. At that time she told me that the company was declaring a lower salary than the real one for reducing costs. Probably the minimum, I don't know. I got very mad over that, and some time later she told me that it should be OK because she was paying taxes so the Government should be aware of what her salary is actually.
Today, talking about retirement (I don't have a retirement fund yet but I assumed that she had), she said that she only has the "crappy one, several hundred per month". I asked her about this, and she said that the company doesn't declare her full salary. I asked her if she has a contract, she said NO, and that in Taiwan normally companies don't give you a contract, only "the good ones".
I'm not going to reproduce all the things I've called her.
I want to know if what she says is true, if that's legal, and what I/we should do regarding this situation. Honestly, I'm ready for taking this to the government, if that makes sense.
Holy fucking cow...

That doesn't make her irresponsible as such ... just young and naive. And TBH when you're that age, you sometimes do have to just suck it down for a year or two to pay the bills.
I suggest rather than dump the girl, the OP might encourage her to improve her skills, tell the boss where he can shove it, and start climbing the ladder of life, instead of assuming she'll be on the bottom rung forever.

Why do you think so many people want government jobs, it's because they actually follow labor laws.
