The Korean economy was like a roaring fire that reached for the heavens. In the first quarter, the economic growth rate was 20% greater than the previous year, and unemployment was at an unbelievable rate of 0%. Upon graduation, many high school and college graduates were immediately employed by the government to meet the needs of the rapidly growing nation. Also, due to the incredible benefits packages offered to soldiers, many enlisted in the military. The increasing enlistment of soldiers and officers caused a shortage of young people in the job market.
In a strange turn of events, corporations began filling this vacuum by rehiring older workers and housewives who had left the workplace after marriage. The entire population of Korea suddenly had employment opportunities in private industry or the government.
