@Yubaru, you're right. But those men generally are receiving half of their pension while still working. And there are companies that give bonuses but not as fat as they used to be. I just think fair enough esp for us who works hard without receiving extra except our rates.

Some people do waste the welfare and the chance given by the govt. Living for 72 yrs and at the near end of his life, murdering someone. Mere words can't express the anger!

Some do want to be a member of certain organizations not to glorify but to disgrace them. A form of sabotage or just an emotionally imbalanced.

@Matt Hartwell, refused to be a Chinese spy or was busted as a double spy? At delicate times like this the lure of money and power can easily overwhelm certain race which has the extreme ambition to outdo everyone. Just being skeptical and not being a racist, though.

And if I wanted to indoctrinate someone, I'll jail him and release him after and nobody will never suspect!

Posted in: Supporters of foreign workers call for same pay, permanent residence See in context

@jc, I do think so, too. But my point is why would that group heckle for those who are still about to come and not for those who are already here as immigrants and more so for those native Jwomen folks. Must be a matter of twisted priorities. Or that they're doing so for at the end they'll be able to extort more from the coming ones. Just skeptical here.

Posted in: Supporters of foreign workers call for same pay, permanent residence See in context

How could those supporters be shortsighted enough for proposing equal pay for those incoming foreign workers when we, us both foreign and Jwomen workers don't even receive equal pay for equal work? To be honest, I do understand the reason why the men receive a higher rate than us women. But gone were the days when the bread winner was the male. There are female breadwinners like me and it quite hurts to see someone from the opposite gender doing exactly the same work as yours and receiving a higher rate just because they are male. But kudos to a small congregation of factories who have the same rate for both men and women.

I just believe those women did it to survive then and now in their twilight yrs still reliving it to survive again. Iam not demeaning nor downplaying the things that they've gone thru but to think that there were multitudes of women who were not able to see the end of the war much less enjoy the things that they had living inside the military camps(food, clothing and a bit shield from death, otherwise they won't be where they are now) and roaming the world for free by crying out sex slaves. Enough for comfort women issue!! They had their grand times before and grandier now! We simply can't judged something that happened before with the present measure stick we have now. The JGovt has time and again offered apology and some financial remuneration. Do they really sincerely ant an apology or a slice of Japan?

As a parent with a son who have just ended his SDF stint, just can't help but be amazed with the info from "knowledgeable" posters. I know for sure that SDF aren't wanting in applicants.

@lorem, no matter how twisted it is, defendant's lawyers are just like that. They are paid to defend their clients. I just remember my ex who upon his lawyer's advice declared he got bankrupt because his wife is a foreigner. As if I was living in style and luxury!!

Posted in: More sterilization victims to sue state in June See in context

Those with disabilities surely receive some kind of welfare from the govt that could be between 10-15man a month. Seems like what they're receiving isn't enough yet and they find a way to milk the govt. I just don't think sterilization is purely eugenics. I just think it is more on economics.

@Tokyo engr,, even in my home country, the Phils, many rape victims are adamant to file rape cases since once a court hearing is scheduled, the scenes before , during and after the act is re acted out and it looks like a second rape.

Posted in: Student told to write essay promising not to fart See in context

Reminds me when I first time handled first year high school students in my home country. It wasn't a special needs school. Someone had taken a chocolate drink for breakfast and had a bad tummy. It wasn't just fart but the real pooh. The whole room stinker but nobody wanted to say he was the one. Until everyone, row by row were asked to stand up. Luckily the house of the girl was just near and she was so ashamed that she dropped out of school. Me and some members of the class cleaned up the mess. This is one of the gross but memorable incidents I can never forget after all these 30yrs.

Posted in: As U.S. opioid crisis grows, Trump calls for death penalty for dealers See in context

And Duterte's crackdown on drugs is mentioned. The thousands who were literally executed for possessing sachets of shabu at the most were killed just to sow fear to the masses. Look at the tens of millions of dollars of shabu from China which was passed through the Customs, only the warehouseman was jailed and if one would wonder where that shabu is now. Nobody knows. What Duterte knows about drug addiction is addiction to shabu, cocaine and the likes. Addiction to prescription drugs like fentanyl is one thing he doesn't know about. If he knows, he'll probably just shut his mouth.

Posted in: Waste report falsified at gov't request for discount state land sale See in context

I'm just wondering about the appraised value. Is that appraised value ¥956million based from govt appraisal or from independent/private appraising agency? I understand that the govt system of appraising is lesser than the existing commercial value. I'm just a bit confused about all these talks on being able to buy a land 14% of its appraised value. Is it not the same as in buying or selling a dollar from a bank. They would sell you a dollar at a higher rate and would buy yours at a lower exchange rate.

Posted in: Abe's office knew of possible problems with land deal documents: Suga See in context

I maybe naive in my opinion but I just think that schools esp with religious inclinations when buying public land do enjoy some kind of discounted pricing. It just so happened that the one who did it is friends with the administration. As almost all kinds of religion have built schools not only as source of fund but a way to let others know their beliefs and recruit new believers. So much with the bashing of PM Abe. Look at other countries like my native country and the US who went off board in looking for change in leadership. The Olympics is just a couple of yrs. I just think that "scandal" is just overly magnified since Japan has that clean image and people tend to feed on scandals to pass their boring time!

Posted in: Japan association allegedly ripped off pay from Vietnamese interns See in context

@mizuame might be so or have gone underground working in obentoyas. The govt shld take a look on those who come here on student visas with the main purpose of working. How can one on student visa who isn't that well off and surely who doesn't receive extra allowance from their parents back home can afford living in Japan with just ¥60,000-¥80,000 monthly income? Most if not all of them work 2 jobs. That's why they dozed most of the time. Aside from the fact that they're not paying due taxes and social insurances. In this case the Vietnamese students and other international students for that matter(not sure those on govt sponsored scholarships) are ripping off the govt not the other way around.

Posted in: Japan to curb asylum seekers' right to work from Monday See in context

@aly rustom, clamp down also on student visas. Safe to say that majority if not almost all on student visas without govt sponsored scholarships are just using it as a way to find work here. As students , they're allowed to work for just 3 or 4 hrs a day. Most abuse it and work two jobs at 4 hrs each without paying up to social security and proper taxes. I just remember in one obentoya I worked, when my job was over at 4AM(which wasn't even come to 8hrs), I was told to just go home after 4AM while a student in my same line was asked to gambatte kudasai 5 ji made. Surely the Hancho San was playing favorites since I was newer than the Vietnamese man in his early 20's. But she didn't even consider that I was paying up for my social security insurance and the right taxes and all things even my train fare deducted, my take home pay was just a bit over 10man. I don7t think it's the company's fault at all. Some people working in the company aren't aware of the impact of their playing favorites to the whole labor market. Quite unfair! I don7t feel anger towards any particular group per se. It's just that most are taking advantage of the humane side of the J People to the detriment of people like me who are ordinary workers to the point of making the labor market worse!

I just think regardless of age, courtship is the most interesting stage of knowing if a person is the One. And I just think that most Jmen don't know how to court a lady.

Posted in: Woman arrested after remains of 4 infants found in concrete in buckets at home See in context

Just maybe she's just after the childbirth allowance. I'm just wondering why the city hall officials didn't try to investigate the whereabouts of those children not even once! I just thought that once the child is of school age, notices from the city hall would come. Even notices for vaccinations and health check ups would randomly come. And if she's worrying that she can't handle it, have it aborted. Doing it once is bad, doing it 4x is the worst of all bad habits! Most probably she's expecting a lesser punishment by owning to it.

Posted in: Gov't to help middle-aged socially withdrawn people find jobs See in context

@Dr. lucifer, I just feel that the so called labor shortage is fake to give reason to procure foreign trainees. Full time housewives and the NEETS, and the retirees who are still able to work can be tapped. All the companies have to do is to map out plan and skeds to suit to each one's lifestyle. Hard work at first, though.

@Wallace, I just don't think competency is a consideration. If ever a hikikomori man is hired, his rate would surely be higher than a woman worker's rate who has been ahead of him in a company.

If a cat would attack a stranger, the scratches would surely be first on the hands not on the face. And if the old woman can't speak, if she's mobile enough, she could gesture or draw. Unless she's really bedridden and someone hold a cat close to her face.

Posted in: 25 years on, slain Japanese exchange student recalled by friends See in context

@katsu78, Iam just wondering why English words like "please" is taught in katakana as "purisu". the idea of learning English is to be able to communicate with other English-speaking people either locally or abroad. So, yes, the school system is at fault. They can at the start teach please with purisu but they shld teach at the same time how it is pronounced properly. And that is my advocacy if ever. This is not disregarding the fault of the exchange agency which sent him. Just sad losing a young life unreasonably!
