Both charge 16man to australia coz it’s direct and most folks here can’t go cheaper through singapore ect at half the price coz their vacations sorry quick breaks don’t last more than a 4-5 days. So they can charge whatever they like.

Son’s math teacher was upset saying most kids use the ai apps for algebra ect. And they work very well. So why the.. do they need to learn how to do all that math in their heads? Keeping themselves in a job maybe. It’s wasting the kids time, the apps are smarter and ain’t going nowhere.

Posted in: Japan's February jobless rate at 2.6%; 1st rise in 5 months See in context

Even in Aust if you’re working a couple of hours a week, or working for unemployment benifits you are counted as employed, the real unemployment rate must be 20% who knows? A friend went for a secretary job and there were over 1000 applicants, getting a job is the same odds as a lottery.

Here it’s different as wages are discustingly low therefore jobs are plentifull.

if you pay peanuts you get monkeys.

a happy worker is a good worker.

If they wanna go home let’em go back, they know the health risks and just want to go home. Most would be elderly so they only have a number of years left, so long as they don’t take their grown up childen home. Nature has prob taken over homes, shops ect must be uninhabital by now and whats open and who’s gonna open a business. Good luck

Posted in: Japan land prices up for 2nd year in post-COVID rebound See in context

Can’t do up and sell homes for a profit here , the house is only the land value so We bought back in Aust during covid and since then prices up 25-40% it’s crazy. But it’s all relative when we sell and re- buy, just keeping up with inflation. Owning a home is becoming impossible there for most.
