Korea to Boost Unskilled Foreign Labor

The government will allow 165,000 unskilled foreigners to work in Korea next year to ease the labor shortage in hospitality and manufacturing.Last year the quota was 69,000, rising to 120,000 this year. Small and mid-sized companies here have been suffering from a labor shortage due to the country’s dwindling younger population.
