For years, Singapore has been facing a problem with low birth rate. Faced with the same problem, South Korea is coming up with drastic measures. The South Korean health ministry want companies to turn off the lights in its offices once a month to encourage staff to go home early and make more babies.
In workaholic Asia, this is drastic. I’m pretty sure this will not work in Singapore because of high cost of living, pressure cooker working environment, high housing prices etc but more time for families is always a good thing.
Wait a minute! Doesn’t South Korea have these same problems as Singapore? Instead of tackling the problems of high cost of living, pressure cooker working environment, high housing prices, their idea is to go home earlier once a month?
Yeah, what a great idea!
