Workers of South Korea's largest auto plant walked off their jobs Tuesday to support a two-day railway strike, disrupting transportation across the country.
Approximately 5,000 unionized rail workers began the strike Monday to protest the government's economic reform programs.
On Tuesday, 50,000 workers from work sites, including Hyundai and Kia car plants, around the country joined the strike.
Half of all passenger and freight train operations have been cancelled for the second straight day due to protests.
Railway workers are also demanding a five-day workweek.
