CNN - South Korea labor strike turns violent - Dec. 28, 1996Most of the marchers were among the 373,000 workers participating in the country's largest organized labor strike, which has idled hundreds of car, shipbuilding and other export plants for three days. Hospital workers and students have joined the protest to show solidarity. The workers are protesting a labor law unilaterally passed by the ruling party on Thursday, which allows companies to lay off large groups of employees, something unheard of in South Korea. Many South Korean workers assume that once they enter a company they have a job for life. But businesses say they cannot compete in world markets without the flexibility to restructure and lay off workers. Ruling party officials tried to persuade the striking workers that the law was in their best interest. "This is all a big misunderstanding," said New Korea Party chairman Lee Hong-koo. "We struggled to write a law that would protect workers' rights and gain management flexibility for ...

Gruntled Center: South Korean Sex Ratio Straightening OutThe good news is that in South Korea, after a binge of girl abortion in the 1990s, the boy/girl birth ratio is trending back to normal. Laws against sex-selection abortions are better enforced there than before, and better than they are elsewhere in Asia. More importantly, there seems to be a change in culture that values girls and boys more equally. There also appears to be less acceptance of abortion in general ...

10:11 pmChina for the last decade and a half has been assiduously working politically, economically and using coercive brinkmanship against the Western Pacific nations, including those on the littoral like Vietnam to prompt a US-exit from the Western Pacific. It has failed to achieve this so far as a result of the determination of countries like Japan and South Korea not to falter in their security commitments to the United States and also the resilience of successive US Administrations to pivot back to reinforcing its Forward Defence Perimeter after periods of strategic neglect like in the first decade of the 21st Century.. It has therefore been heartening to note that within a month of the Trump Administration assuming office in Washington, the US Defence Secretary, General Mattis has paid visits to South Korea and Japan for defence consultations with his South Korean and Japanese counterparts. It needs to be remembered that the US Defence Secretary has vast ...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to construct and test the feasibility and potential utility of a Participatory Action Oriented Training for Hospital Nurses (PAOTHN) program to prevent work-related musculoskeletal disorders. The PAOTHN program emphasized the active participation of nurses, resulting in practical and low-cost solutions for improving their work environment by reducing risk factors of musculoskeletal disorders. METHODS: The PAOTHN program was conducted in a hospital located in a suburb of Seoul, South Korea. Of the 24 units in the hospital, 16 units participated in the study. The main components of the intervention were a series of structured workshops, continuous technical assistance by the research team, and periodical forums for sharing "best practices" among the participants. RESULTS: Through the workshops, head nurses of the participating units identified a total of 46 strategic (23 short-term and 23 long-term) plans for reducing musculoskeletal disorders risks across five dimensions: (1) patient care and treatment, (2) safe handling of drugs, medical devices, and equipment, (3) workstation design, (4) physical environment, and (5) welfare facilities and administration. Over the course of the year-long project, 18 of the suggested plans were completed, for an overall completion rate of 39.1%. CONCLUSIONS: The PAOTHN program was found to be feasible and potentially useful in reducing the musculoskeletal disorder risks faced by hospital nurses, and in identifying both risk factors and improvement opportunities at the individual and organizational levels.
