Enact the Act on Health and Medical Personnel! Raise the Minimum Wage to 10,000 KRW! Stop Retro-progressive Revision of the Labor Law!”

 

KHMU host ‘Joyful March of White Wave’

 “Have more workers and enact the act on health and medical personnel!” roared 3,000 KHMU members at the Seoul Station Square. On June 29, KHMU (President, Yoo Ji-hyun) hosted ‘Joyful March of White Wave’ for ‘Act on Health and Medical Personnel’ and ‘Minimum Wage 10,000 KRW’ and against ‘Retro-progressive Revision of the Labor Law’. The rally was held at 2:00 pm in the Seoul Station Square.

 

With the slogan, “Let’s enact the act on health and medical personnel with the power of 48,000 union members,” those 3,000 union members in white shirt, holding yellow umbrellas, confirmed their resolutions for the enactment.

“Hotel-like amenities and pricy medical devices are increasing in hospitals but the number of workers there is way below the needs. The number of Korea’s medical workers stays at the only half of the OECD average. The best and safest way to save lives is to eliminate precarious working positions and staff more medical workers,” said President Yoo in her opening speech.

 

The rally features many supportive and encouraging video messages from representatives of three opposition parties, Seoul City Mayor and other civic and labor groups. The chair of Albanodong, part-time workers’ union delivered supporting speech while being in his ongoing 13 day long fast protest for 10,000 KRW minimum wage. In the middle of the rally, a surprising event also took place, which led to raising the search rank of KHMU to no.1 position in the daum café site. After the end of the rally in the Seoul Station, the rally attendees marched around 2.4 kilometers to the Seoul city hall. The march was fun and joyful with protesters having their faces painted, singing Updown Song, dancing and performing with umbrellas. In addition, large-scale falshmob took place in the Seoul Square after the march.
