S. Korean gov't bill aims to protect platform-based gig workers Updated: 2020-12-21 15:21:31 KST

The South Korean government is going to introduce a bill in the National Assembly aimed at protecting people working in the gig economy using online platforms.
Many of these workers face unstable and even abusive working conditions.
The labor ministry said the bill will govern platforms like food delivery, ride-hailing and housekeeping.
According to the government, the average platform worker made about two-thousand one-hundred-60 U.S. dollars a month, and worked a little under nine hours a day.
There are nearly one.eight million platform workers in South Korea, which is more than seven percent of the whole working population.
Also, the proposal would ensure that platforms give their workers occupational health insurance and unemployment insurance.
