Abstract

The amount of workers that are not able to find the full-time employment they desire has been a problem for many industrialized countries. South Korea in particular has begun to face a large and growing segment of its labor force that is unable to find secure, regular employment. This poses an economic, social, and psychological problem to these workers. In Korea, the expansion of irregular labor stems from Korea’s legacy of a weak union system and its neoliberal reforms after the Asian Financial Crisis of 1997. The problem of irregular labor was only exacerbated by structural changes and failed government policies. These issues reveal a flaw of the businessoriented and neoliberal economic ideology adopted by South Korea.
