Do not, whatever you do, keep any of your funds in yen apart from your everyday needs. As soon as you earn yen change to Dollars and Swiss Francs. The yen is just going to collapse very soon.

Jeez, japan can't seem to do anything right What a useless hoard of politicians the japanese are saddled with. Good job they never complain about anything, just gamaning and shoganaiing themselves

Companies see no reason why they should increase the wages of their slaves. They don't move to other companies, they gladly do long hours with service overtime. Why increase the pay??

Supply rises according to their figures. Shame demand is falling as nobody has any money or decent secure jobs.

And yet again figures show just how much of a basket case the japanese economy is. Hopeless, just hopeless and there's absolutely no answer to it. The japanese people will just go on gamaning and shoganaiing themselves as per usual of course and so things will just steadily go on getting worse.
Frightening to consider what the economy and the state of the country will be in 10 years time. No wonder the country can't attract the rich elite foreign workers they desire. Who in their right mind, english teachers excepted of course, would come to japan for a one year contract on the such low wages offered?? No one.

How did japan get itself into such a mess? The only foreigners who will go to japan now for the pitiful wages on offer are the poor third world factory workers and the fresh out of college types looking for a year's fun.

So hopeless but who cares?? Just take all your money and get out pronto.

What a poor article this is. Written by an abe supporter or an apologist.

I had to laugh when I heard this news. Japan and abe are such basket cases. There is NO answer to the problems of the japanese economy. The yen and the economy will just continue diving. No wonder no one wants to put money into the dying currency yen these days!
