Tens of thousands of non-regular workers from the public sector took part in a protest at Gwanghwamun Plaza in Seoul on Wednesday. The rally is part of a nationwide three-day strike organised by the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU).
Demonstrators are urging president Moon Jae-in to follow up on his promises of changing their status to regular employees and increasing wages.
An... Еще alliance of non-regular school workers which has 95,000 members said at least 50,000 of them would walk out and join the protest calling for a basic salary increase of more than 6 percent. The government said it can offer only a 1.8 percent rise in response.
