Foreign Correspondents Ep. 121 - The two faces of outsourcing
The death of a 24-year-old worker and the outsourcing of risk

On December 27, 2018, the National Assembly passed the so-called "Kim Yong-kyun Law". The bill, which is a comprehensive revision of South Korea's Occupational Safety and Health Act, was named after a deceased 24-year-old worker. The December 11 death of Kim Yong-kyun, who was working at the Taean Thermal Power Plant as a subcontract worker has sparked debate over the outsourcing of risk, which eventually led to the revision of the country's industrial safety laws. Outsourcing is a common business practice that is being implemented by many global companies, with the aim of cutting costs and raising efficiency. However, debate continues to rage over the issue of the gap between regular and temporary workers here in South Korea, as well as the string of fatal industrial accidents and the question of accountability. In this week's edition of "Foreign Correspondents", we take a closer look at the controversy surrounding the outsourcing of risk.
