What happens when subcontracted workers turn into podcast DJs? Subcontracted workers at the SK Broadband, Inc. began a podcast broadcasting titled Workers Have Changed, to deliver the news about their strike for job security. The podcast studio has become a theater of their life as they share their stories—daily hardships of subcontracted labor, coping with rude customers, and their futures and dreams. They finally achieved a victory to convert their employment status from non-regular to regular, yet with their monthly income cut in half. Given this “half” success complicates the picture, Bong-Keun, a union member decided to quit the job.
I always wanted to know what it means to “grow up well.” I was curious why people take challenges to confront the harsh and suffocating realities. Now I believe that some go through challenges and trials in order to make friends with whom they can navigate these grim realities. I am glad to be with those who struggle to “grow up together.”
