Pyongyang, June 24 (KCNA) -- Today marks the 76th anniversary of the proclamation of Labor Law of the DPRK.

This law fully embodying the Juche-oriented idea about the labor issue was an original labor programme and a democratic law as it reflected the requirements of the developing Korean revolution and the desire of the popular masses and newly regulated the issues related to the working masses' labor life.

President Kim Il Sung provided the historic foundations for a democratic labor programme and the settlement of labor issue during the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle. After Korea's liberation, he worked out every article of the labor law in the course of his ceaseless field guidance for the building of a new country.

On this basis, he comprehensively expounded the character and basic content of the labor law and its features and significance at the 8th Session of the Provisional People's Committee of North Korea.

The labor law was promulgated on June 24, Juche 35 (1946). As a result, all the factory and office workers came to be invested with all democratic rights to work and rest, including the eight-hour working system, the paid leave system and the social insurance system, for the first time.

The President made sure that the socialist labor law was enacted in line with the requirements of the changed reality after establishment of the socialist system in the country, and thus guaranteed the independent and creative labor life of the popular masses by the new law.

The socialist labor system of the DPRK developed onto a higher stage thanks to the outstanding idea and leadership of Chairman Kim Jong Il .

Under the loving care of the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un , who makes history of love for the people with devoted service for them as his inborn disposition, the working people of DPRK are now leading a more worthwhile life, enjoying much state and social benefits. -0-
