Here's the platform.

Welfare state means higher taxes and scapegoats. The rich and immigrants will take these roles. Jobs for youth, women, and seniors so the working man is shunned. A democratic win means higher taxes and "equality".

How did you get "communism" out of that?
I dont think I've read anything so vague in my life.

Minjoo goals for Korea

Be nice guys
Try hard
Good economy
Children are the future
Do the best we can
Peaceful guys
More to come...

I would hope and assume the original Korean language version goes into more detail with actual policy details and budgeting outlines.

Higher taxes on the rich, jobs for youth, women, and seniors, and more equality...

You're making communism sound AWFULLY good.

All people are equal just some people are more equal than others. Russia loved equality too so they killed and starved Ukrainians and other ethnic minorities as they were equal but not as equal as Russians.

Also Russia loved to tax the "Rich" who weren't as equal as the Russian ethnic rich who were exempt and gained wealth in a communist state.

Hi, I looked at my contact and couldn't find anything about the 1st of May specifically (EPIK contract). I looked up Korean national holidays and found that Labor Day is a banking holiday and not a national holiday (https://publicholidays.co.kr/). I would love to have the extra day off or overtime. Can you tell me exactly where in your contract it mentions the 1st of May? or let me know if EPIK contracts not included in this deal? Thanks!


From my Gangwon contract:
Article 7 (Work Hours) ① The Employee shall work eight  hours per day for five (5) calendar days per week from Monday to Friday and shall not work on Saturdays, Sundays, Labor Day (May 1st) and any national holidays of the Republic of Korea. However, temporary English programs run by the Employer (e.g., English camp) may occur outside the Work Hours specified in this clause and on weekends.  In this case,  the Employer shall pay according to Article 7, clause ③ and ④.

Which would all be relevant if Minjoodang had even one thing in common with Stalinism... You're in outer-space my friend.

Jesus Christ, a president has been impeached, there's an emergency election and all you people ****** care about is when you get your day off ... this forum sometimes

what else are we supposed to care about? 99% of the people on this forum have neither residency nor voting rights, and aren't even on contracts longer than 1 year.

I was just about to say that.  We can't change anything about the situation, so why worry about it? If a new president means no more ESL jobs then I want to do as much travelling as possible while I'm still here.

If the democrats win which they likely will then everyone worried about their day off will be worried about their jobs!

The election is going to change up Korea and it won't be a good change for us foreigners.

Saw this in today's paper:



Koreans also are not welcoming to foreign workers because they believe foreigners are committing crimes. In fact, crimes committed by foreigners have increased significantly in the country.

http://koreajoongangdaily.joins.com/news/article/article.aspx?aid=3031131

A 28-year-old female job-seeker surnamed Won said she was frightened when she ran into number of foreign workers in Ansan, Gyeonggi.

I went to Ansan to meet my friend and I was really scared after seeing many foreign workers standing out in the street, she said. I didnt run into any trouble with foreigners in my life but I heard a lot of news of them committing crimes. Dont they take jobs away from us as well?

One thing conspicuously absent is taxes.
There's a whole lot of pie in the sky promises there, but not even the most rudimentary of costing. Even their economy section is pure buzzword diarrhea. If they haven't mentioned this on the Korean version then its pure unadulterated populism and it means they are terrified of raising the taxes(which are pretty damn low) and they'll have to gut other areas of the economy to fund their manifesto on the short term.
The more you know.

A 28 year old woman who probably went to English hagwons is scared of foreigners. I assume they must of been non English workers but come on! In Canada if I was scared of foreigners I couldn't leave my house everyone in Canada is from a different background and ethnicity.

Bet the lady votes democrat. All the young people here learned English and most went to English academies but they still hate foreigners it is ridiculous.

The next government will cut foreigner jobs. They already are talking about closer ties with China and North Korea. Park supporters were their own but they generally loved Americans and other foreigners they even fly American and UN flags at rallies.
