Delivery dilemma

 
Food delivery drivers, who are members of one of Korea’s largest labor unions — the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions — head toward the Blue House on Sunday demanding that the government fund a benefit society for them. It has been reported that the Finance Ministry has opposed using the government’s budget to finance the establishment of a private benefit society. The delivery drivers argue that many struggle to subscribe to private insurance because of the high costs and even if they do, it doesn’t cover any injury sustained when working and thus require the help of the government.
