1. In 1997, the US subprime mortgage crisis triggered a global financial turmoil, and the domestic unemployment rate climbed from 4.14% to 5.85% in 1998.
2. In 1998, in view of media reports that retired athletes such as the hearing-impaired Olympics hoped that the government would guide employment, the Bank contacted the Executive Yuan Sports Commission (now the Sports Department of the Ministry of Education) to release the official workers.
Third, the Bank provides job vacancies and hopes to help unemployed retired players to have a stable job, so that they can start again and find better jobs in the future.
4. From 1999 to 107, a total of 22 retired athletes from all levels of the competition were employed; 6 of them have found a better job and left:
(1) Two coaches were transferred.
(2) The national examination passed the transfer to two civil servants.
(3) 2 other jobs.
5. The remaining 16 people were mostly weightlifting players (9 persons, accounting for 56%); they were satisfied with the working environment and treatment of the Bank. The Bank sincerely hopes that they will be able to work in this big family of the Bank before they have a better chance. In 2006, the average monthly income of 16 colleagues was about 39000 yuan (including salary, bonus and overtime).
