Sydkorea: Højere mindsteløn = højere arbejdsløshed
I Sydkorea har en mindsteløns-stigning på 29% også udløst en stigning i arbejdsløsheden. Især er produktions- og bygge-sektoren blevet ramt, skriver CNBC:
South Korea's unemployment rate jumped to a nine-year high in January as more people shunned low-paying work in the face of rising minimum wages, putting further pressure on the economy and deepening policy frustrations for President Moon Jae-in.
The unemployment rate rose to 4.4 percent in January in seasonally adjusted terms, the highest since the 4.7 percent level posted in January 2010, with most of the job losses seen in manufacturing and construction sectors, data from Statistics Korea showed on Wednesday.
