dc.description.abstractKorea is currently facing problems with employment, as did European countries during the 1990s and 2000s. In the context of low growth and high rates of unemployment, European countries rolled out various policies to boost employment and employment rates. As a result, the employment rate of the EU stands at approximately 69%, higher than that of Korea. Some European countries have even managed to improve their employment rates beyond initial expectations, by implementing labour reform and related policies. A close examination of the Korean labour market is necessary for a meaningful comparison, ahead of analysing European countries. Korea’s unemployment rate is less than 4%, the second lowest after Norway. This is also lower than half the OECD’s average rate for unemployment. However, Korea's employment rate is around 64.3%, which is also slightly lower than the OECD average; compared to developed countries, the gap becomes even wider. This significant gap between unemployment and employment rates indicates, for the Korean government, the urgency of this issue. Raising employment among vulnerable groups, including the youth, women, and seniors, is also a priority.
