The system to which she was referring is the contentious "high level professional system" in new labor legislation that would see specialists in certain areas with high incomes exempt from upper limits on working hours.© Mainichi Shimbun
quote of the day
Employers will become exempt from the responsibility of keeping track of employee working hours, so even if someone dies due to overwork, having the case be certified as a work-related death will be nearly impossible. The number of bereaved families who are suffering hopelessly in silence and are left destitute will only grow.
