LIFE OF WORKERS AT INDUSTRIAL PARKS AND EXPORT PROCESSING ZONES IN VIETNAM – CURRENT SITUATION AND SOLUTIONS

Pham Thi Kien

Abstract


After decades of renovation, the rapid development of our country's industry has resulted in a rapid increase in the number of workers working at industrial parks and export processing zones. In addition to advantages, such as skill level, sense of style, discipline, income, etc. of workers have increased, there are also many problems, namely accommodation, learning opportunity, mental and recreational life of workers are not guaranteed. At the same time, the existing risk of a generation of workers who "prematurely retire" and become a burden of unemployment of society is posing itself as a problem that is yet solved. Obviously, this problem required the attention of workers, business owners and state management agencies alike; however, it cannot be dealt with after one night. The fact that a considerably large number of workers who are just rushing to work for money, satisfied with a barely enough living conditions and accept that these difficulties drag on will persist unless the government and the entire society soon have appropriate solutions.
