South Korean President Moon Jae-in has praised the revision of the Labour Standards Act limiting maximum weekly working hours to 52, terming it as a first step towards a dignified life. The revision approved by the country’s National Assembly last week is an important step in improving the quality of life and creating jobs, he told his senior aides.

The country will now move on from being a country with the longest working hours among the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development and deaths linked to strain caused by overwork, Moon said.
