South Korea said Tuesday it would punish three factory owners for bowing to North Korean pressure in a wage dispute over workers at the Kaesong joint industrial zone. The North unilaterally announced in February a wage hike for the more than 50,000 North Korean workers employed by South Korean firms operating in Kaesong, just north of the inter-Korean border. South Korea demurred, insisting that under a previous accord, employment conditions in the zone could only be adjusted with the agreement of both sides. As the row intensified, Seoul ordered the firms not to yield to pressure, but the South's Unification Ministry said three firms had caved in and signed Sunday a statement promising Pyongyang to pay the increased wage in the future.
