S. Korean Authorities Denounced for Disregarding Deaths of Workers
Pyongyang, July 22 (KCNA) -- The Trade Union of Builders of south Korea held a press conference in Seoul to denounce the authorities for disregarding the deaths of workers due to the labor accidents, according to the south Korean internet newspaper Voice of People.

Speakers at the press conference said that the construction sites claiming more than two lives of workers in a day due to labor accidents are little different from the ferry Sewol.

However, the irresponsible attitude of the "government" remains unchanged and the bill to punish the chief culprits of the labor accidents is still shelved at the "National Assembly", they said, adding:

Workers demanded various measures for safety at construction sites, but the authorities refused to take them.

It was disclosed that the incompetent bureaucrats have no will to protect vital rights and safety of people.

The speakers declared they would launch an indefinite general strike to have the situation settled.
