She needs to go. The best thing for the UK now would be a "no deal" Brexit.

Posted in: What do you think are the pros and cons of accepting more foreign blue-collar workers into Japan? See in context

Not many people from First World countries will come; the working conditions are not good, and salaries are low. Lots of people will come from Third World countries, because they will be duped into thinking they can make good, easy money in Japan. We all (well, sensible people) know what will happen. The driving down of wages and a "race to the bottom". Terrible day for the average Japanese worker.

The taxi drivers in Japan are nice enough; I just wish they knew where the hell they're supposed to go.

A terrible day for Japan. This will only serve to accelerate Japan's decline to Third World status.

Yeahhhh.... because EVERY city in Japan looks like Tokyo, right?

Every city in Japan looks exactly the same. You should really travel more before making such ignorant comments.

Posted in: Ghosn admits he signed papers on post-retirement pay; Saikawa also questioned See in context

The money wasn't paid, so it's not remuneration, just as your pension isn't remuneration until you actually receive the payments.

Evidently you have a very poor understanding of financial accounting rules.

Man, looking at this vast, concrete sprawl, I sure am glad I don't live in a Japanese city.

Posted in: The Tokyo metropolitan government plans to introduce an ordinance against child abuse that will ban parents from using physical punishment as a means of discipline. What do you think of this proposal? See in context

Huge difference between giving a naughty kid a smack on the bum and beating them around the head etc.

Nothing wrong with the former, if the kid has already been given enough warnings.

NRA may now suggest that doctors be armed as well..? And and while we're at it how about the patients, too.

If doctors feel they need to be armed, who are you to say they can't be? I am all for free choice. Give people the choice to do what they feel is necessary to ensure their safety.

What's most depressing is that most of the people flocking here are not children but adult (often university educated) women.

Posted in: Under the current labor system in Japan, companies are required to keep employees who wish to continue working after retirement age until at least the age of 65. The government wishes to raise the ceiling to 70. Do you think that is a good idea? See in context

I am the same as the poster above. I will never be able to afford to retire, so I need to be able to earn money until I drop dead, probably in the office.

Adhere to the rules of Japan, or leave. Very simple. Japan should only take in quality people. Sensible measures such as this will ensure Japan doesn't become like the UK or many other countries in western Europe.

Posted in: What do you think of the JET (Japan Exchange and Teaching) program? See in context

It's main purpose surely must be getting young Japanese kids used to being around non-Japanese people. The main purpose surely can't be English education; if it were, the whole thing has been an abject failure. How many years has it been going now? Where does Japan rank in the international TOEIC scores again?

I got flu once and my Japanese coworkers were incredulous I didn't go to the hospital to get lots of crap, useless powders and weak medications.
