They didn't wait for a strike or pubic outcry, they just raised the pay on their own. Now, why can't us corporations do that?

Hyundai's US workers make 2/3rd of what Hyundai's Korean workers make. Hyundai is used to paying $100K + bonus for assembly jobs in Korea, so they are less hesitant to raise wages than say Toyota and Honda.

Honda Japan also recently raised wages. Know a lady working there as part of their army of temp workers. She got a 3000 yen monthly raise monthly to her already meager take home pay of well below 200,000 yen (and no bonuses paid).

This is the reality for most workers in Japan (even more so for women) who are not "full-time".

All due to out of date and unfit for purpose LDP labour policy that favours the conglomerates.
