Posted in: Japanese firms offer highest pay hike in 32 years in spring wage talks See in context

Which companies raise wages when Japanese GDP is failing?

No company is going to raise wages in such a situation.

This article just doesn’t add up…

Mohammed bin Salman is the head of a country which uses ‘law’ to carry out mass executions, stonings, lamppost street hangings , limb decapitations and keeps bone saws at overseas embassies for nefarious purposes.

And the Japanese are welcoming such an individual?

Anyone who has had a run in with Japanese authorities know that they adopt a very bad and arrogant attitude at times. Being in a situation where a breach of regulations or even asking too many questions or not being aware of a procedure is in Japan, a chance for small minded tyrants in power to exercise their limited authority.

Posted in: Visitors to Japan exceed 3 million for 2nd straight month in April See in context

I’d disagree that Japanese are being punished in any way.In fact, it’s the opposite.

Take for example, the foreign tourist starting their vacation in Kansai and leaving from Tokyo.

A one-way ticket to Kobe from KIX is 3,200 yen.

A return ticket is 3,700 yen.

It’s quite obvious who is being royally shafted here even though mid-afternoon, foreigners make up 90% of bus users.

Plenty of people are making shed loads off the gaikokujin…

Posted in: Visitors to Japan exceed 3 million for 2nd straight month in April See in context

The yen's slide to a 34-year low has made Japan a bargain destination for foreign visitors, with arrivals set to blow past the annual record of 31.9 million seen in 2019.

Well, Japan is making new records off the visitors too.Heaps of revenue and jobs being created!

While the surge in arrivals is good news for Japan's economy, it has caused frictions with locals. Complaints of litter and illegal parking caused local officials to erect a barrier this month to block a popular photo spot of Japan's iconic Mt. Fuji.

Start hiring multilinguals to herd the flocks then!

More jobs for the Japanese!

Posted in: Over 80,000 foreigners working at convenience stores in Japan See in context

A manager at one outlet said that "without foreign employees, we don't have enough people to cover the shifts."

Try paying more money and Japanese people will come running!

There are masses of foreigners coming to Japan and (without checking) would assume convenience store sales are up as this where most Instagram clips seem to focus on.

Why, if taxes are higher in Japan then why are wages not?

Corporate greed seems to be somewhat to blame

Company President Terry Woychowski, a former chief engineer on General Motors' pickup trucks, said the car is a “clarion call” for the U.S. industry, which is years behind China in designing low-cost EVs.

So, quality is good,better than a western or Japanese vehicle costing much more.

I want one!

The greed of governments are a bane on the tax-payers. Just had a raft of letters come in demanding tax.Those taxes are increasing whilst wages are not.

In Japan wages are not rising and inflation has been rising for well over a year now.

All we need now is some flooding on farmland. It is coming into the rainy season and heavy rains will push up food prices.

The Japanese government is failing miserably!

At no time in Japan did I hear of anyone being prescribed an oral medication for COVID-19.

Vaccinations were reported to be the gold standard.

It seems very strange that people are vaccinated multiple times and yet millions of people also died.

When the next scamdemic comes around,

I won’t be taking any vaccinations; that’s for sure
