Looking for work

Job seekers attend a lecture on unemployment benefits at an employment support center in Jung District, central Seoul, Monday. As jobless claims skyrocket with the economic uncertainties from the coronavirus outbreak, the government increased the budget for unemployment benefits and approved some 13 trillion won ($10.9 trillion) for job-seeking benefits in its third supplementary budget Monday. This is a 3.3 trillion won increase compared to the original budget and the largest in history. [YONHAP]
