Today, on my way to work, I've seen many 할머니 and 할아버지 who were working hard under the hot weather. Suddenly, I felt really sorry for them. They looked really tired. To make the matters worse, however hard they try to earn money, the amount they can get is very limited. As you can see, what can they do?
At the same time, some people that have good teaching skills make good money by teaching English or any other subjects. Even though they are students, they easily get money. They don't have to prepare a lot since they have merely slight knowledge in their head. They just go and talk bullshit. Money naturally comes inside their greedy pockets. I really just felt really skeptical about this. I'm not a pure philanthropist but this phenomenon got me thinking a lot about this Korean economy and society. That's one of the facts that the gap between the haves and have nots gradually increases. Even it's harder to eradicate this black market. I don't know which is right and how to solve this phenomenon. In education areas, many kids who are raised under the have nots are deprived of chances to get educated. Isn't it unjust?? I just happened to see old people and observe them. I don't know if I'm a weirdo or this society is weird..
