This book examines the value Korean employers and workers place on stable employment with a focus on the workers' want for more desirable transition outcomes as modified by various individual and structural factors, particularly labor market structure. Results of the analysis show that internal labor market structure has increased employment stability and the desirability of transition outcomes in Korea over time. Korea's industrialization has enabled internal labor market structure to mature to a level that has increased employment stability and the desirability of transition outcomes. This implies that Korea has experienced industrialization in such a short period that internal labor market structure has not matured enough to influence the ways in which other factors affect employment transition patterns. Results of the effects of labor market structure and other factors on employment transition patterns imply that Korea's industrialization has had mixed effects on workers' economic and social well-being. On the one hand, it has improved the overall level of workers' well being, yet on the other hand, it has increased heterogeneity in well being among different types of workers.
