Quote: "Demand for professionals in Japan's hospitality industry is high"...

This makes me think of the entertainment industry, nothing at all to do with 'hospitals' or care giving.

He also said working in Japan is a prime choice for Filipino professionals because of the relatively high salaries, as well as the culture of inclusion that characterizes the East Asian country.

Relative to which country or countries? If it is the philippines then yes.

Good for them. I know a few Filipinos in Japan and they seem to like it here. Also, a big plus is that they can quickly and easily fly home and visit relatives.

Most of the seamen including captains for the Japanese merchant navy are Filipino. There are training schools.

Good luck to them. We need caregivers and nurses in Japan and they need the money for themselves and their families

Filipinos also have a solid work ethic compared to others.

It's true. I've met many Filipinas who work very long hours, for example in Snack or Pubs. They don't complain, and send back money every month via Western Union to support their family at home. Compared to some other SE Asians, who are a little work shy, Filipinas are a good choice for workaholic Japan.

That will also afford them the opportunity to practice their profession in the country permanently.

So they will be permanent "guest workers", but not "immigrants". The article needs to make it clearer.

Good for them, best wishes!

"Inclusion" in Japan? For foreigners? Dude is smoking some pretty strong ganja!

One out of every seven Filipinos/Filipanas works outside of the Philippines. I've lived where there was a large contract worker force and they were certainly among the best. Unfortunately many have faced terrible treatment around the world so this should provide a very good opportunity for them.

I like Filipino but the jobs should be given to umemployed Japanese who spend the money in Japan.

The only reason there are Filipino seamen and officers in the Japanese merchant navy is because the companies can pay lower wages and offer less benefits.

Some years back I had to help some Filipino nurses escape from Saudi where they had been employed at a hospital but their treatment was harsh and the Saudi kept their passports to prevent them from escaping. They were only allowed outside one a week for a couple of hours. The Saudi were always behind with their wages. They were expected to work six days a week, twelve hours per day. They asked me to inform their country what was happening because they also feared for their lives. In the end they returned to the Philippines safely.

which lowers Japanese wages too. Globalization only benefits the corporations not the public.
