See video
Description: 
South Korea faces rising social inequality, low and stagnating productivity, and unsustainable demographic changes, all of which threaten long-term economic growth prospects as well as social stability.

A number of policies intending to reform the labor market have been put forward, but many of the core challenges, such as opportunities for marginalized workers, continue to persist.
