The Posco 1% Sharing Foundation earlier this week held its 11th concert for manufacturing workers ahead of Chuseok, or the Korean Thanksgiving, the company said Wednesday.

Taking place at Seoul Digital Industrial Complex, the former Guro Industrial Complex, the concert featured veteran pansori singer Nam Sang-il and rock singer Kang San-ae, and was attended by some 300 workers in the neighborhood.

The Posco 1% Sharing Foundation was founded in November 2013 and has hosted a total of 11 cultural performances for manufacturing workers.

Employees of Posco and partner companies donate 1 percent of their salaries to support the foundation, the company said.

The foundation plans to host concerts in North Chungcheong Province, the southern city of Daegu and the port city of Busan this month.
