In South Korea, cargo truck drivers are staging a nationwide indefinite strike, demanding that the government protect their wages through measures such as freight rate hikes. It’s the first major labour dispute for President Yoon Suk-yeol’s government, as inflation at the highest level in over a decade. Put in place three years ago, the Safe Trucking Freight Rate System, guarantees a minimum freight rate for drivers. If the system expires by end-2022 as scheduled, the drivers said their paychecks will be cut by as much as half with the recent surge in fuel prices.
