Hey pilsun,

2.1-2.3 is too low in 2019 GS25 pays a similar wage. Why don't you raise your wages a little show some charity in your heart for the poor waygookins!

How about offering 2.6 to 2.9 million won a month to get people?  It would be a fair wage to pay.  2.1 to 2.3 million won was 2006 to 2008 wages when Korea had a much cheaper living cost.  Keeping wages the same as living costs have soared and minimum wage skyrockets makes little sense as more and more teachers will by pass you long term and just go to China, Vietnam, the Middle East, and others who are paying more.  If you want quality teachers, you have to step up and pay real wages.  You may get lucky and find someone ignorant to Korea's living costs and even fall for the lies of recruiters, but you will get a bad reputation and in the long run, not be able to get people to work for you.  Please move your wage and work conditions to the year 2019.  Thank you.

How are you going to afford all this on 2.1-2.3 mil?

Also, is the "Special extra completion allowance 1.2M KRW" in addition to severance or is it in place of severance? And is it "per contract" or just one payment?

Well actually, wages were frozen after the bubble burst in the early 90's and because so many people wanted to go to Japan at the same time.  Over the years after that, employers started chipping away at perks like apartments and flights.  By the end of the 90's and into the 2000's decade, you now had to pay your own apartment and your own flight while wages stayed the same at 250,000 Yen per month.  Then, about 10 years ago, the Great Recession really kicked Japan in the balls.  So, many jackhole employers pushed wages down because they could.  You saw offers sometimes as low as 180,000 Yen a month in some rare cases.  But mostly, what you saw was a lot of 230,000 Yen a month offers. 

With the Great Recession over and needing to hire more English teachers (many have also bolted to China and elsewhere nowadays), not only have wages gone back to pre recession levels, but many have even gone up.  I have seen quite a few now offering partial flight re-imbursement up to 100,000 Yen.  No free apartments, but a higher salary for many now.  I have seen a lot of 270 to 280 thousand Yen being offered.  I have even seen a small number going up to 300,000, but not the common rule. 

This was in the spring, I looked at Japan again.  I checked out other countries and did some deep searches in a discussion about Korea.  I was shocked and surprised.  Even Japan is rising for the first time in decades.  But Korea was staying still?  Something does have to give.  That said, I do see some offers on various Facebook groups for 2.6 to 3.0 million for some afternoon (1 to 9ish) hakwon gigs.  I see some 2.4 to 2.6ish.  I also see quite a few 2.1 to 2.3 million offers.  Some stubborn hold outs I guess. 

If I were out of a job, I'd just go teach another country for a year.  I wouldn't work for the 2.1 garbage.  I think with some going higher, wages will eventually rise.  Some are already breaking.  Will it be another year or two before they get to where they need to be?  As long as there isn't another Great Recession globally?  I'd ask for upper 2.0's even if a slight pay cut.  But no way I'd go lower if I lost my current job.  Screw that.  I have self respect.

 To the OP, I do hope that the payment of 1.2 million won is in addition to the normal one month contract completion bonus. Offering a lower bonus is breaking Korean law.

As regards Hangook77,  I'm an experienced teacher, and I have taught in hagwons before. I really enjoyed my time in Korea, and I like the country.  But I have to deal with South Korea's babyfied recruitment industry or EPIK's petty requirements if I want Korean jobs. Also, living costs go up, salaries start to fall, and hagwon bosses make more profit.

Meanwhile there are many schools and universities in the Middle East that will pay for my flight (both ways), and help limit living costs. China is still an option for people who want to have a decent life abroad.
