quote of the day
It is difficult to rely on only permanent employees to manage our grocery store sales spaces, and this allows us to move more part-timers into core roles.

Reduce the wage gap?How?
By lowering the permanent employees’ salaries.
'Wage gap'? It's semantics. If you're full-time (say 40 hours a week) and paid (hypothetically) $15/hr, that's a lot different from being part-time (say 20 hours a week) and paid that same $15/hr. That isn't a 'wage gap', it's permanent earnings disparity that won't change. Nice face-saving PR, though.
To fully appreciate Aeon Retail, I suggest, failure to fully declare there agenda,
First it would be wise to research here...
Types of Employment Contracts in Japan
Aeon Retail intentions must be open and transparent.
Will the same contractual obligations be implemented regardless of hours?
That's all terms and conditions, including pension status?
Yeah, right... reducing the wage gap? maybe. But hiring more part-timers and not allowing more full-time employees will save them millions upon millions in insurance (health, pension, etc.), and THAT is why they're doing it.
