“Prepare a countermeasure for half-price labor” Care workers from two major parties

The Confederation of Trade Unions urged Democratic Party presidential candidate Lee Jae-myung and People’s Strength presidential candidate Yoon Seok-yeol to come up with a promise that reflects the needs of care workers. He said, “The cause of the disparagement of the social value of care work and the degeneration of it into ‘half-price work’ lies entirely with the government. According to the KCTU, the average monthly wage of care workers, estimated at 1.1 million, was 1,528,000 won as of 2019, which is 57.3% of the total employed.
