I humbly offer my impregnation services to South Korean wamman.

I'd be willing to migrate as a skilled worker to some first world country desperate for tax payers and people who aren't too socially repressed to have a family.

But... naaah, I'm a dirty foreigner. What do I know? I'm sure they'll figure it out.

Idk about Korea but here it's mostly because you can't afford to. I could barely support myself and someone else (most of that cost would be rent which wouldnt even change, either) before bringing children (whole bunch of new costs) into the mix.

I work a skilled job with half a decade of experience, and am in the correct salary range for the area, as well.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 2 months ago

Yeah. I'm being sarcastic but I know it's not that simple.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 2 months ago

Would you want to work in a country that is known to have such a shitty work life balance that people aren't having children because of it?

[-] [email protected] 3 points 2 months ago

I wasn't even going to touch that. But yeah... Japan is kind of the same thing, I think China is going to start trying to get migrants desperately in the next couple of decades because of the one child policy working too well. But if they are kind of assholes about it, being racist and making life very hard to settle, what's the point then?

[-] [email protected] 12 points 2 months ago

Finally somebody listened to me. JFC you have to pay people to have and raise kids, it's stupidly expensive.

Vouchers for babies lol

How are the social laws in Korea for this? Like parental leave, healthcare, government support for kindergarten and schools, housing?

[-] [email protected] 29 points 2 months ago

Maybe not be so openly racist south Korea.

Everyone I know that's gone to work that has told me of the openly - although polite - racism that takes place there.

Wanna go this tat club with you south Korean friend? Oh sorry you can't because your not native.

Fall in love with a local? Hope you plan on moving outta the country because everyone will hate the both of you.

Nope. Did it to themselves.

Think I read somewhere they are the most pure race anywhere in the world.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 2 months ago

Yeah, a lot of people don't realize that the most racist nations tend to be the ones with the least diversity.

Truly the master breed 🙏 \s

Stupid question, but why not just target more immigration? It's not like there aren't enough people in the world. Having babies first taxes the economy, then eventually helps it. Letting immigrants in now helps now. And they'll probably have babies.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 2 months ago

Bring Koreans to Mexico and South America!

They love anything Asian and we are totally unaware of anything related to historical disputes of all kinds. So we would probably grow really cool hybrids...Mexikoreans or Korexicans. I didn't know, but most Koreans I know are tall people. I always assumed all Asian people were short, but that is certainly not the case. So tall people in Mexico do get an advantage.

I think immigration is a short term fix Comes with a lot issues like language/culture barrier, they can't join stuff like the army.

They might not even have babies, like the rest. Also there is a higher chance of leaving the country.

[-] [email protected] 0 points 2 months ago

Seems like all of those issues are ones that can be solved over time.

The longer they wait to integrate, the harder it becomes.

[-] [email protected] -1 points 2 months ago* (last edited 2 months ago)

The whole point of increasing the birthrate is the youth will eventually replace the older generation. So the younger and earlier, it's the better for integration / assimilation I guess.

Still think migration it's a short-term solution. Good for filling out some jobs her and there now. But doesn't solve the birthrate problem itself.

The reason they don't do that is Racism. Almost every modern nation with population decline has racist anti-immigration policies.

[-] [email protected] 14 points 2 months ago

Korea is absolutely not prepared for any kind of immigration. And they've been isolated for so long they really don't know hor to deal with people who aren't from their culture.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 2 months ago

All the more reason to force them to fix their shit.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 2 months ago

I’ve not been but the impression I get is that systems just have trouble handling foreigners who aren’t there for business purposes.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 2 months ago

If by "have trouble" you mean "are explicitly designed to exclude"
