The salaryhole between staff in main conglomerates and small and mid-sized firms has grown such a lot that the former earn practicallytwo timesup to the latter.
The wage gap stood at W31.81 million closing year, up 7.6 %in comparison to 2014 (US$1=W1,143). Normalbody of workers at fundamental conglomerates earned W65.44 million a year on average, whilst workers in SMEs earned most effective W33.63 million.
The Federation of Korean Industries analyzed the payrolls of 14.68 million salaried workers and discovered that the reasonable annual wage stood at W32.81 million last year, up 1.5 percent from 2014.
But in giant conglomerates wages rose 4.2 percent and in SMEs just 1.2 percent.
"More workers in conglomerates remain hired longer because ofincreasedtaskbalance than in SMEs, so their pay degreesstay going up, and robust unions in corporations also get steeper wage hikes", acknowledged Prof. Kim Sung-soo at Seoul National University.
There has been a pointybuild up in the collection of workers who make more than W100 million a year. Last year 2.7 percent or 390,000 of salaried workers earned more than W100 million, up 11.6 percent as compared to 2014.
But the variety of workers who make between W80 million and W100 million dwindled via 10,000 to account for 2.8 percent. Workers who earn between W60 million to W80 million multiplied by 70,000 to account for 6.5 percent. That implies 12 percent of all salaried workers earn more than W60 million.
But 75 percent of make lower than W40 million. Some 38 percent earned between W20 million to W40 million last year, and 37 percent less than W20 million.
