Strike in South Korea – level 2
More than 40,000 South Korean workers are on strike. They come from different industries. For example, workers from Hyundai are on strike.
The government is pushing a new wage system. The government bases the wage system on a worker’s performance, not a worker’s position or seniority. Workers are trying to put a stop to this.
The government says that it is doing this to improve on low levels of productivity.
