Housewive's side jobs

주부들이 한푼 집안 부업을 하는 것에 대해서 오마이뉴스에서 노트를 적을 만한 글이 있다. A text in Ohmynews worth noticing about housewives (chubu) seeking income-making opportunities, in which they are simultaneously able to take care of household chores, especially childcare. As the text is in the "Stories of life" (Sanûn iyagi) section, there's not much data but the writer's observations around her; it's also telling that texts like this are placed in "Stories of life", as this kind of side jobs are hardly defined as economic activity - it's after taking care of the child which is more important and which defines the scope in which the woman can do the work.
The writer tells that on internet pages where side job opportunities are presented, a new item gets a huge amount of hits in a moment. It's also the employer's market; the number of applicants is huge.
Monitoring would perhaps be the English for the Korean term based on that very word. Looks like it's about "monitoring" services and products which are close to housewives' own life sphere.
The other two kinds of earning opportunities are "discussions" (chwadamhoe) and market research. These both, are well as the previous item, are about sales of products.

Continues later.
