I'm waiting for Universal Basic Income. Anyway my salary is FLAT low.

Japan continues to defy basic economics. If there are more job openings than applicants, companies should be raising salaries and benefits (or taking other steps to improve work-life balance) to compete for talent. But nothing ever changes, so Japanese workers continue to have a choice of only low-paying/long hour jobs. It's almost as if it is a national corporate collusion, where all the companies engage in anti-competitive practices ("we won't raise our workers' salaries if you don't raise your workers' salaries.") No wonder so many talented Japanese workers wind up working in the USA or Europe.
