Posted in: Tokyo Olympics is looking for volunteers, but may have a hard time finding them See in context

The biggest problem I see in Japan is that most people are not allowed to take more than a week of vacation at once. Japanese people, when they want to travel or even take a training course for more than a week, usually quit their jobs. Even if they can find 40,000 people willing to slog to the far corner of the world, they still will need another 40,000 who either work at companies sympathetic to the cause, or who are willing to quit their jobs - and potentially restart a new one at an unliveable salary - for the Olympics. I say this as a current Olympic volunteer at Rio, who had to endure hours of lecture about how bad of a person I am to desert the company during the Olympics.
