Man City teammates are throwing

Man City teammates are throwing… ‘Hallandman’ politely delivers uniforms

The world-class personality of ‘scoring machine’ Elling Haaland (22, Manchester City) is becoming a hot topic.

British Sports Bible reported on the 17th (Korean time), “He showed that Haaland is the most polite of the Manchester City players.”

In the video released by the media, the Manchester City players delivered their training jumpers to the team staff. Most of Manchester City players such as Jack Grealish, Kevin De Bruyne, and Joao Cancelo threw the team jumpers indifferently. The team staff were busy getting it and putting it in the bag.

But at this time, only Haaland did not throw the jumper, but approached the team member and politely delivered it. The team member looked at Holland in surprise. Then he tapped Haaland on the back as a thank you.

The media praised Haaland’s behavior, saying, “Halland has a humble attitude.” “A team member patted Haaland on the back. This gesture shows how much he appreciates Haaland.”

Norwegian striker Haaland wore a Manchester City jersey last summer. He is showing a fierce goal storm like the best striker in the world. He has scored 11 goals in seven league games this season. There are 15 ‘EPL teams’ that have scored fewer goals than Haaland. That’s an incredible scoring record.

Manchester City spent 60 million euros (about 83 billion won) in signing Haaland. But the amount of investment already feels cheap. Thanks to this, Manchester City are leading the league with 5 wins, 2 draws (17 points) and an unbeaten streak.

[MT Report] Abundant jobs, marginalized 20s (top)

[Editor’s Note]  They are complaining that there is no one to work in all directions. On the other hand, young people in their 20s are suffering because they cannot find a place to work. It is a ‘mismatch’ (mismatch) caused by job polarization (dual structure). Is there any way to overcome the irony of ‘youth unemployment’ amid the historically low unemployment rate of 2.1%, which is actually ‘full employment’?Despite the abundance of jobs due to daily recovery after COVID-19, the phenomenon of young people struggling with employment difficulties is taking place. This is because of the ‘preferred experience’ of companies and the ‘mismatch’ in the labor market. It is pointed out that the only fundamental solution is to resolve the dual structure of the labor market (polarization), such as the wage gap between large companies and SMEs.

According to the National Statistical Office on the 17th, the unemployment rate in Korea was 2.1% in August, down 0.5 percentage points from the same month of the previous year, the lowest on record. Excluding the frictional unemployment that occurs in the process of job search such as job change and job search, it is virtually at the level of ‘full employment’. That means there are plenty of jobs.

The increase in the number of employed people in the same month was 807,000 compared to the same month of the previous year, the highest in 14 years since 2008 as of August.

However, the situation is different for young people in their 20s. The overall unemployment rate in the first half of this year was only 3.3% on average, but during the same period, the unemployment rate for young people (ages 15-29) reached an average of 6.9%. While the overall unemployment rate fell to 2.9% and 2.1% in July and August, respectively, the youth unemployment rate only dropped to 6.8% and 5.4%.

In the case of the ‘extended unemployment rate’, which includes the de facto unemployed who are looking for a job while working part-time, the young people have maintained a level of around 20% every month this year, and recorded 18% in August.A (29 years old, male), who graduated from a four-year university in Seoul and is preparing for a job in his hometown of Gwangju, said, “I applied for new recruits more than 5 times in the first half of the year, but I was rejected.
I don’t know who you are talking about,” he said. B (27 years old, female), who graduated from a four-year university in Seoul and got a job at a financial company last month, said, “It is normal to write a total of 50 to 100 job applications before getting a job. It seems,” he said.

The reason the job boom deflects young people is that companies prefer experienced jobs that require less cost and time for education and can be put into practice immediately. In the job market where casual recruitment is common, job-seeking students who have just graduated from college or graduate school and have no experience are at a relatively disadvantageous position.

Among the five major domestic groups (Samsung, SK, Hyundai Motor, LG, and Lotte), Samsung is the only one that still maintains open recruitment for new employees. According to a recent survey conducted by the Korea Federation of Entrepreneurs through a specialized agency, the top 500 companies in domestic sales plan to hire 35.8% of new college graduates as experienced workers in the second half of this year. The proportion increased even more from 29.7% in the first half of this year.

Mr. B said, “When I went to the final interview with the company, most of them had experience except for one or two.” He said, “There are many so-called ‘second hand freshmen’ with experience, and they seem to be good at finding jobs.”A mismatch between the supply and demand for jobs is also a major cause of youth unemployment.

Certain industries such as shipbuilding, catering, agriculture and taxis, and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) complain of difficulties in finding workers. According to the government, there were 234,000 vacant jobs as of June this year, of which 96%, or 224,000, were created by ‘businesses with fewer than 300 employees’. On the other hand, the jobs preferred by young people are limited to places with good treatment such as large corporations and public institutions.

Kim Yu-bin, head of the trend analysis department at the Korea Labor Institute, said, “Even if it takes a little longer to find a job, there seems to be a phenomenon in which entry into a high-quality job is considered efficient in the long run, and the entry itself is delayed.” It’s because there’s a so-called ‘glass ceiling’ and it’s difficult to move to a better job,” he said.

Experts pointed to the dual structure in which the labor market is effectively divided into two worlds according to working conditions such as wages and stability as the key cause of this mismatch. It is with this recognition that President Yoon Seok-yeol ordered, “The issue of dual wage structure between the main contractor and subcontractor unions is a problem that our society must solve, so we should make an improvement plan” ahead of the summer vacation last month. Minister of Employment and Labor Lee Jeong-sik said, “To solve the problem of dual structure, an epochal paradigm shift is necessary for the overall labor law system, which is out of the existing framework centered on the typical worker. can be an alternative to

Director Kim Yu-bin said, “If the government focuses on the issue of the wage gap between large companies and SMEs, there will be indirect subsidies for SMEs that lack the ability to pay. form of policy,” he said. “There are many alternatives at the government level, but how efficiently the budget can be used will be important,” he said.

Joseph Han, a research fellow at the Korea Development Institute (KDI), said, “If the labor market works well, wages should rise in places with a shortage of manpower, and a lot of young people should flow in, but there are many cases where that doesn’t happen.”
He continued, “For example, in the case of the shipbuilding industry, which is suffering from a manpower shortage, there is a problem that it is difficult to raise wages rather than making a profit right away even if there are many orders. There is a need for adjustment in such a way as to get it back,” he advised.In the recruitment market, the ‘spec war’ such as various certifications, language scores, and internship experience is intensifying.
Job-seeking students point to ‘upgrade leveling of specifications’ as the highest barrier during job preparation. What is striking is that a ‘mini career’ of 6 months to 1 year is also positioned as a specification.

According to a survey conducted by Sarain, a job search matching platform last year, when looking at companies (437 companies) that have had experience in hiring ‘used new hires’ (new employees with experience in related fields, such as interns), among all new employees, The proportion was 34.7%. It increased by 7.6 percentage points in one year from 26.1 percent in 2020.

Job-seekers are also realizing that their specifications are being upgraded. Shin, 27, who has been preparing for employment in insurance-related companies for nearly two years since the outbreak of COVID-19, said, “After the outbreak of Corona 19, companies recruited fewer new employees and the number of job seekers increased. “Even though it is a new hire, experience in related fields beyond TOEIC or a second foreign language certificate is the basic specification,” he said.

There is also a lot of dissatisfaction with the fact that companies are shifting their hiring methods one after another and preferring experienced workers. Kim Tae-hyeon (pseudonym, male, 28), who has been preparing for a public company for nearly a year, said, “Since recruitment of experienced workers is prioritized due to frequent hiring, there are too few recruits. However, in the end, most of my friends are unsatisfied and want to change jobs.”

They also expressed dissatisfaction with the new hiring methods that companies were creating. For example, the ‘recruitment-linked intern system’ is a system that allows you to use cheap intern labor for a few months and leave it at any time. University student Jeong Mo (23) said, “The employment-linked intern system is to see if the person around you is paying the minimum wage for at least one month to as long as six months.” I can’t even give it out.Paradoxically, the most necessary thing for job seekers looking for a job to earn money is money.

A (26), who is preparing for a job six months after graduating from college, spent over 350,000 won to fill out her resume. If you purchase the aptitude test book and take online lectures, including the online lecture cost, the cost of spending exceeds 500,000 won.

Person A said, “I am a liberal arts student, so I have to fill it up with ‘plausible’ with language credits and certificates.

University student Jeong Mo (23) also said, “Companies introduce new things in the recruitment process, and it is a big barrier to follow them one by one. They say they do it, but to prepare it, it’s all money,” he said.

As the amount of money invested in preparing for a job is high, it is natural for job seekers to dream of a company with a high salary. Jung said, “I think the monthly real income should be over 3 million won.

Jung said, “Some of my friends had a hard time entering the company, but the salary did not meet expectations and came out in two weeks.”

A 29-year-old Lee, who majored in arts and sports, said, “If you estimate the expenses that have been invested in tuition and lesson fees to find a job, it will be over tens of millions of won. I don’t think it’s comfortable to say that you don’t know the situation.”
