In my experience:
I have known brazilian born half Japanese people here on PR have unwritten deals with their employers to work until they qualify for unemployment, then "get fired". They then collect unemployment until it runs out, then get another job.
It is pretty rampant among their Japanese communities. My friend was also staying in Mie for a while, doing the same thing.
That might explain why it has happened 10 times to this guy in 8 years.
A lot of "woe is me" in here, but I have also known plenty of foreigners here for 5-10 years in the same job, or only changing job by choice.
