Quotes-start.png "If the agreement were to pass, workers' rights in both countries would be at greater risk, because hard-won labor protections would be dismissed as "trade barriers." Free trade would undermine South Korea's labor laws, cut wages, eliminate jobs and increase the number of temporary workers without benefits or job security. Already, more than half of all workers in South Korea are "irregular" workers, hired on temporary employment status." Quotes-end.png
