Just rubbish part time and contract jobs where workers are treated as disposable commodities to be used, abused and discarded.

The yen has only one way to go, down down down. Best to hold as little of your assets as possible in this weak loser of a currency. I keep my assets in dollars and swiss francs. I hope everybody here does the same.

The US should just totally pull out of japan and let the japanese spend the money to defend themselves against China et al. That's what the japanese people want anyway. The japanese won't mind all the extra taxes necessary to fund their own defense.

Oh my god Obama don't do it! There's nothing to apologize for, the Japanese deservedly brought the bombings upon themselves, I just can't imagine the victim japan fest that will happen should he stupidly go there.

Imagine the uproar if all japanese were treated the same way in say restaurants in London or New York. And yet laughingly the apologists rush to defend their masters.

Good job for the powers that be that Japanese never complain. They can do whatever they want to them and there's never a whimper. Abenomics is for the rich and the elite.

Japan has 40% of its workers on rubbish part time and temporary contracts. These workers having no stake in the company, are not going to be motivated to increase productivity. Hopeless situation!
