The KCTU argues that employers will abuse such workers who should, instead, be hired full-time. The government states the bill would protect such workers. Also, the Korean labor department states the KCTU strike is illegal and darkly warns the union will be dealt with “sternly”.
Note that while the bill was approved by a government panel, it still needs to be voted on by the house, which will happen this Thursday.
