Abstract

Recently, “passion pay” is considered as non-payment or less than minimum wages in Korea. In fact, it is a compound word combining passion and pay. In practice, companies and public organizations tend to hire youth who receive non-payment or a small stipend less than minimum wages. However, passion pay has brought much poorer working conditions infringing upon rights to minimum wages, working hours, and any (monthly or annual) leaves, even though many employers prefer it in order to use cheap workforce in reality. In the United Kingdom, likewise, there are zero hour contracts, which have been a growing controversial issue. These are employment contracts where an employer is not mandated by law to offer regular working hours. Some proponents consider these as part of labor market flexibility so that the unemployment rate gets lower and the employment rate grows higher than the current rate. (The rest omitted)
