Proposed bill would give an extra day off when holidays fall on the weekend Updated: 2021-06-15 16:55:59 KST

South Korea's ruling Democratic Party says it's going to pass a bill in parliament this month that will allow workers to take an extra day off if a public holiday falls on a weekend.
There is already a system like that in place, but it applies only to the Lunar New Year, the Korean thanksgiving holiday Chuseok and Children's Day.
Under this proposal, it would apply to all so-called red days, which would mean four extra days off this year.
That's because four of the holidays that remain this year, including Liberation Day and Christmas, fall on weekends.
The leader of the Democratic Party said this is a "win-win" because it'll give people some time to rest and also boost consumer spending.
