South Korea’s “Central Daily” reported on August 13 that the number of jobs in South Korea is gradually disappearing, the number of unemployed has reached a new high in 21 years, the number of employment continues to decrease, and more and more “invisible unemployed” give up job hunting. The report quoted the employment trend in July published by the South Korean statistics agency on July 12, saying that the number of South Korean employment fell by 277000 in July, which has dropped for five consecutive months, the longest consecutive drop since 2009 affected by the world financial crisis. At the same time, the employment rate of the labor force aged 15-64 in South Korea also dropped to 66.0% in July, 1.1 percentage points lower than a year ago, setting the lowest employment rate record in July in seven years after 2013. On the other hand, the number of unemployed people in South Korea in July totaled 1.138 million, the highest in July since the statistics began in July 1999. < / P > < p > “this means that South Korea has the largest number of unemployed people after the foreign exchange crisis. The overall unemployment rate has reached 4.0%, which is the highest since the statistical standard of unemployment rate was updated in July 1999.” Novel coronavirus pneumonia has led to a decline in corporate cliff breaking, and no signs of recovery have yet been reported. However, the South Korean government has different views on the soaring unemployment in July. Novel coronavirus pneumonia, Hong Nanji, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of planning and finance, issued a Facebook statement saying that employment indicators in July were “not even better than the new crown pneumonia outbreak”, but employment indicators are indeed improving from May this year. In his opinion, the current situation is in an extraordinary period, so we can’t simply compare this year’s data with the same months in previous years. We should eliminate the seasonal factors and compare with the employment figures of last month. Hong Nanji said, “the number of new jobs in South Korea in May was 153000, in June 79000 and in July 72000, which maintained an upward trend for three consecutive months.”. How much fart is normal?
