TAKING ON ABUSIVE BOSSES
SOUTH Korean workers fed up with bullying are being emboldened by a new tougher labour law to secretly record alleged abuse or harassment by their bosses, boosting sales of hi-tech audio and video devices.
Gadgets disguised as leather belts, glasses, pens and USB sticks are all proving popular with employees.
Several incidents have made international headlines, most notoriously the 2014 Korean Air “nut rage” case in which the airline’s vice-president, Heather Cho, assaulted a crew member over the way she was served macadamia nuts in first class.
Jang Sung-Churl, chief executive of electronics firm Auto Jungbo, said covert recording devices “have been selling like hotcakes”. | Reuters
