Gov't to Hire 12,000 More Public Servants

The government on Thursday pledged to hire 12,000 new public-sector workers in the first half of the year but without saying where they are needed and how it will pay for them.

A presidential advisory committee and the Ministry of Strategy and Finance said they plan to secure the necessary funding through a supplementary budget in June, but the main opposition party is against the plan.

The government said it will announce the new hiring quota next month and public service exams will be held in October. The government wants to hire around 1,500 new firefighters and an equal number of police officers, social workers and non-commissioned military officers as well as 3,000 more administrative workers.

Women Still Bear Full Burden of Household Chores

Korean women spend an hour and 36 minutes on household chores every day but their husbands only 18 minutes, even in double-income families.

Men also usually sleep more than their wife.

The findings come from a study by Cho Mi-ra at Seoul National University of 3,131 couples in their 20s to 50s.

Cho divided couples into nine categories based on the working hours of husbands and wives and analyzed how much time each spent a day on work, household chores, sleep and leisure.

In double-income couples where both husband and wife work more than 10 hours at work, the women spent an hour and 18 minutes more a day on household chores than the men.
