Posted in: Kishida pledges to do utmost to tackle negative impact of price hikes See in context

I don’t know a single Japanese person receiving a higher wage in 2023 than in past times.

I don't know a single person in Japan, Japanese or otherwise, who has gotten a raise in 10 years. The only way to get some sort of pay raise is to leave the company and find a better paying job. No one is raising wages at all.

I think the article and police are not asking why he did that. Hopefully he didn't leave his mark on them, then wash them.

products will be sourced from farms free of child labor by 2025

Don't buy their product until they do this. Literally their product has child labor right now. I'm shocked they don't want to immediately fix this.

Every TV shopping show uses this in Japan. Call in the next 30 mins to get another one free.

I don't think this is an internet problem more an advertising issue.

JP marketing at its best. Make the public believe it is a tradition or rare and sell it for profit. KFC at Christmas is the same thing.

How do they plan to do that? Sounds great but unless you are going to hand it to them yourselves there isn't a body that can give it to the citizens.

Posted in: Gov't to offer shopping points to promote contactless delivery See in context

Why is the government getting involved in private delivery? Are they only talking about Japan Post or is taxation money being used for private companies? Sounds very much like a slush fund for logistic companies.
