So, its a Law, companies will be fined for not following it right?

the company I work for has its own calendar, whenever i ask the company why i have to work on holidays they politely explain that they follow their own calendar, and that national holidays are just guidelines.

the red is too strong for a reef tank, a reef tank is too shallow, in the sea most of the red light gets absorbed by sea water, the light that reaches the corals in the wild isnt the same light that plants need.

what is the color temperature and wavelength?

100000 for a lamp is expensive,and most people dont want any red light in a reef tank, can you change the red intensity?

google used to rank searches by how many people searched and how many people clicked a link, I have no political opinion, but maybe the algorithm are just showing the links people click the most.

I won't say she's smart, but she met the guy before, after people spend time with other people they tend to trust eachother, trusting that guy was a mistake, but that could happen to anyone... maybe the guy you have been hanging around with is a psycho, there's no way to tell, im glad she is fine.

Posted in: 'Englishisation' - Is it working? See in context

I don't understand why some people can't learn another language, I barely went to school, and I know my english isn't good, but i can read everything on this web site and understand it, I only had english lessons from a public school in a 3rd world country... if people want to learn something they will, I can't put "english speaking" on a job application cause I don't have a degree or anything as proof, even though I can't use it for work, I'm glad I can see websites and talk yo other people that don't speak portuguese.

Posted in: Gov't to tighten controls on foreign trainee program See in context

Tinawatanabe, they moved here to learn a new skill, but they dont learn anything at all, The problem is not how much they get paid.... "the supervisors would always tell the trainees in a threatening way that if they dont do over time and work faster they would all be fired and sent back to their home country"

Thats a politely way to say the supervisor was screaming at the trainees to work faster, even thou they where already working faster than everyone else, every single day.

Yubaru, what i meant is, they get paid 750/hour but they have all the expenses you and I have, they have to buy food, pay rent, water, electricit... Im not saying that they should get everything for free, but did you read what wtfjapan posted?

". I know of three chinese trainees that get around 70,000 yen a month and they work a lot more than 40yrs/week."

Posted in: Gov't to tighten controls on foreign trainee program See in context

Been working with those "trainees" since I got my first job in japan, From what i saw, they are just a cheap workforce, I'm not gonna say that every place does the same thing with the trainees, but every place I worked and had trainees was the same, they would do the same job for 3 years, the same thing, again and again and again... also, they all worked harder and faster than all Kaishain, But the supervisors would always tell the trainees in a threatening way that if they dont do over time and work faster they would all be fired and sent back to their home country, The last two trainees used to show me their paycheck, and always asked me how much i was getting paid, They were getting paid 750JPY per hour the first year, and had to pay all the bills and taxes we pay.

Now, thats what i saw, but my opinion is: If someone has the intention to use the trainee system to make a quick buck in a foreign country, they are wrong from the begining and should not enter the trainee program, the trainee program is suposed to teach new skills that will be usefull for the foreigners that choose to take it, and now im gonna make it really clear here, I AM NOT approving what the employers do, every one should be treated with respect no matter where they are from or what they believe in, My point is the trainee program is suposed to teach new and usefull skills that the trainee will use to get a better job and get a better living standard in their home country, if you join with the intention to make a quick buck you are WRONG!

And second, the goverment should not overlook this matter, the goverment IS responsible for the well being of the locals and foreigner residents, and the government should be responsible for everything that happens, those trainees are working on Japanese territory, the Factories and work places are within Japan, and the well being of these people are the responsability of the Japanese goverment, if the goverment overllook the abuse, they are responsible for it. Not to mention that they should scrap the whole trainee program and start from scratch with laws and regulations that make the employers actually teach new skills and protect the trainees from any kind of abuse.

I told some japanese people that they should not abuse the trainees, and they told me "they get treated even worse from where they came from"; Ok, that may be true or not, but my point is, they are in Japan now, If they get abused here, thats what Japan and the japanese people really are.

I would like to see some statistics of how many men are convicted of crimes they never committed, not just gropping cases, but all cases... If the public put too much pressure on the jcops, they will find someone to blame, cause that's all the people want... someone to blame.
