Plenty of jobs carrying trays or working 12 hour days in agriculture out there-career advancement awaits!

-7 ( +4 / -11 )

Those farm retiree already passed away or just can not physical able to go to field. So availability still there but is it really filled? 12 hours outdoor in summer or cold autumn , that's not easy.

The increase in the unemployment rate reflects "people voluntarily leaving work for better working conditions. Another reason could be the abating coronavirus pandemic situation," an official at the internal ministry said at a briefing.

First an assumption, second a "could be" guess. Fact of the matter this guy has no idea why, as he knows that the statistics regarding unemployment here are screwed up and totally unrealiable!

Define 'job' then lets discuss whether this is a good thing or not

The usual BS-article from Kyodo on the topic featuring the usual BS from the J-gov:

The increase in the unemployment rate reflects "people voluntarily leaving work for better working conditions. Another reason could be the abating coronavirus pandemic situation," an official at the internal ministry said at a briefing.

If workers are "voluntarily leaving work for better working conditions" then why the heck is the unemployment rate rising? Oh yeah, "another reason could be the abating coronavirus pandemic situation". (#governmentBS)

No need to get into details as to why the unemployment rate of 2.6 is complete BS either...

what you can offer to a company in terms of human capital

The problem right there is referring to people as "capital", wealth or assets owned by organizations.

That is how the LDP and Japan Inc. see it, and why the Japanese worker is in the condition it sees today.

Excellent, little by little we are improving, GO JAPAN !!..

define your skills and what you can offer to a company in terms of human capital and let's discuss whether or not you are qualified for the job you've determined is a good thing

Sure, but my point was about the inclusion of part time and irregular work in employment statistics.

You wrote "Define 'job' then lets discuss whether this is a good thing or not", as I understand it, there are plenty of jobs in highly skilled areas such as in the IT sector for which Japanese companies have turned their sites on foreign nationals to fill positions they can't find suitable people for here. So, again...define your skills and that should better give you a definition of whether or not the job you're qualified is "a good thing or not".
