Abstract This study examines the positive long term employment status of Thai women spouses through data collected interviewing a total sample of 15 Thai women spouses in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. The conceptual framework is based on the family labor supply model, individual capability and social network theory. The findings indicate that, in regard to the positive long term employment status, family situation variables including the presence of family in Thailand, and child characteristics play fairly significant roles in the positive long term employment probability for Thai women spouses. The estimation result shows a strong linkage between the human capital and social capital. Employment assimilation for these Thai women spouses immigrants may be confirmed based on the finding that foreign spouses who have attended a free programs offers by government are more likely to work for long term such language classes, or skills courses. Similarly, the assimilation effect on the friend and human capital those who have learned essential skill from a friend are necessarily more likely to work for long term.
