S. Korean Authorities′ Anti-Worker Policy Flayed -KCNA

S. Korean Authorities′ Anti-Worker Policy Flayed

Pyongyang, July 5 (KCNA) -- The south Korean Teachers Union in a commentary on July 1 denounced the authorities' anti-worker policy.

The commentary recalled that the Minimum Wage Committee on June 29 set forth a negotiating proposal for deciding the minimum wage for 2012 at the tacit agreement with the management side.

Even this proposal calls for infringing upon the elementary right to existence of the workers suffering destitution and pain due to low wage, it deplored, and continued:
The said committee, in the final analysis, has whiled away time not to help workers get higher pay but just to read the face of the management side.

Noting that the demands of the workers have not been reflected at all in the minimum wage level since the present regime appeared, the commentary said the committee and the management side can never shirk off the blame for having made a mockery of the workers.

It urged the committee to retract the above-said proposal at once and raise their wages.
