    It is prevalent in most companies in Japan, but in the advertising companies it is and has always been taken up a few levels , In the 90's I knew people that worked consistently a minimum of 16 hours a day and they may have called it zangyo but they didn't receive any extra pay either, sad to say the Managers didn't need to use too much persuasion to get the new staff to work these ridiculous hours.

    What a choice to have to make , based purely on the fact that you hate one of the candidates more than the other.

    hahaha, being neither a Democrat nor a Republican , a Clinton fan nor a Trump fan I am amazed at some of these comments, You only need to look at Trump on TV , listen to both him and Pence lie about his statements to know that he has a huge Ego and wants to be President more for himself than the people of America, Saying that however , how some can watch the same news and think that Hilary is less of a liar then Trump amazes me completely and she definitely wants to be President for herself and no-one else. I now look forward to the big thumbs down from everyone, its just a shame that out of the population of America your Republican and Democratic parties could not find a decent candidate to put up between them. Your allies are terrified and your enemies are laughing.

    She claims to work in the entertainment industry as in on TV , she also claims to be an actress, She is obviously not well. She is suing her previous agent for money for a previous ad she did for the TV. She also claimed to be about 10 years younger than what she was , although that might be one of the more normal things she has done.

    So you are suggesting that when this article was written the UN was good and did all the right things?

    Anyway it is an interesting article and tends to lend more weight to what I have been saying than what you are , Now that you have found it read it again , slowly so that you understand it , Nowhere in the article does it say that all Phillipino girls working in Japan in hostess bars have been trafficked . It claims that they interviewed 19 girls who they determine have all been trafficked Of that group, more than half the subjects (55 percent) had been to Japan between two and six times, while five percent had been to Japan between seven and eleven times. So 11.4 of the 19 have been to Japan multiple times, now how does that work, they were trafficked here then trafficked home then trafficked back and forth?? Or they were just tricked multiple times ?

    Maybe read what hacel Salazar Parrenas from Stanford University Press wrote who worked as a Hostess in Japan for 9 months for field study.

    Below is a quote of hers.

    "While acknowledging that many hostesses endure miserable conditions, and a few are subject to severe coercion, she asserts that anti-sex trafficking campaigners exaggerate the dangers and stoke moral panic to advance their misguided policy agenda"

    Sound like anyone you know Clamenza? Is it the best I could muster?

    Well I am happy that you managed to save those girls and get them away from those traffickers , I am sorry I was so glib about your efforts to save them. Your website didn't open, I would have read it if it had , I would have been curious to see what the UN who has Saudi Arabia as Head of UN Human Rights Council had to say on the matter , That doesn't exactly give them much of a pedigree when it comes to human rights does it? I have also stated a few times that there unscrupulous people involved in the bar world and in particular with girls working there from South East Asian countries , but you can not admit that not all of them are involved in that practice.

    Oh and shame on me as I will continue to frequent the bars that I have been going to for years . And now I will be able to go and ask them why they didn't tell me years ago that they were trafficked there , had no passports and were being forced to offer sexual favours to everyone else but me apparently.

    You've never "seen" it? Are you expecting a sign outside that advertises sex-trafficking victims for hire? Go, ahead. Ask these women next time who is holding their passports

    You have seen it ? I hope you reported it to the police or are you just suggesting that every Philipino Bar in Japan is full of young women that were trafficked here for sex? How do you explain the ones that travel back to the Phillipines to see their families? How do you explain them having lives outside the bars ? How do you explain them out shopping ? How do you explain their facebook pages? Or do you explain it away by just saying " They do not have day Jobs" , " They do not have lives outside the bars" There is nothing wrong with being ignorant on a subject , but there is something wrong with being ignorant and arguing about it with your one sided narrow minded point of view. Have you ever even been to one ?

    I have been to Phillipino bars in Tokyo , Yokohama , Osaka and Kobe where some young girls work ( none in their teens ) and most in their 30's , I can honestly say I have never been told " No Gaijin " if you can't afford the 4000Yen an hour then they don't want you no matter where you are from. No doubt there will be some unscrupulous owners of these bars but for the most part they are just harmless fun, drinking very watery Scotch and singing bad karaoke. Most of the girls have a day job as well, they work as cleaners in hotels and carers for the sick.

    simply put, because a majority of Japanese simply cannot understand nor accept that "being Japanese" is something inherently learned by one's surroundings (Japanese language, culture etc.)

    Sumo Bob , I am afraid I am also guilty of that lack of understanding that you say the Japanese don't have, I am not Japanese and although I lived in Japan for a long time, speak the language , worked there and fell in love with the country , I am not Japanese and never expect to be, although my children were born there and speak Japanese and lived half their lives there, Simply because they are my children I don't think of them as being Japanese , I think of them as being my children and therefore not Japanese , but if I am asked by Japanese I say they are " Half" and if asked by Westerners I say they are Eurasian or that their Mother is Japanese. My good Japanese friends often joke that I am more Japanese than them, but I take it for what it is worth nothing more than good humour and acknowledgement that I have taken the time to learn about Japan.

    As a proud father of three Haafu kids, I have had that same argument for more than 20 years with a good friend of mine who wants his children to be called double, my children all still carry their Japanese passports , but actually have 3 nationalities, I am not suggesting we call them thirds as they are half Japanese and half Scottish , I am very happy for the young lady who is representing Japan and I doubt very much that the average Japanese person has any problem with it, after all Haafu Japanese people have been gracing the Japanese magazines , Tv programmes and billboards of Japan for a long time now, My children find it difficult to walk the streets of Tokyo or Osaka without being offered some kind of modelling job or another , So in this case they must be more than grateful that the 1/2 they received from their mother had a much greater influence on their looks than the half they received from me, I know I am..

    You can get life insurance in Japan that pays out for suicide , if he had that , then his family would be compensated financially and their reason for suing would be to aportion the blame. Yes the company have a duty of care to their employees , but if you are a family man you have a duty of care to your family as well.

    Legalize it for sure, but it would have to be highly ( pardon the pun ) regulated and for those who continually say it isn't harmful, there are direct links between heavy use of Hydro to Schizophrenia , Not with all users , but then not all heavy drinkers become alcoholics, not all marijuana smokers end up doing hard drugs and wrecking their lives , It needs to be regulated for the same reason we have regulations in and on anything , to keep the bad apples from abusing it. Both the users and the suppliers.

    People found guilty of animal cruelty in Queensland face a possible $110,000 fine or two years' jail

    Having laws against animal cruelty is only part of it, the courts must also sentence, this year a couple of teenage boys killed a couple of alpacas that were pets at a local school in Australia, they were caught arrested and charged and let off yet again by the pathetic court system we have come to disdain.

    The law is not that old, and has been enforced from time to time over the years, usually when a club has too many other problems, fights , underage , drugs and noise complaints. Bar Isn't its? were around in the 90s and they were named that way to confuse the issue , they also checked IDs at the doors to keep out under 20 year olds even though the law allows 18+ into bars, But they need to be 20 to drink. If you get a licence to dance you must close at mid-night , the same law is applicable to Pachinko and soaplands ( even though soaps are supposed to be illegal ) and was introduced to stop promiscuity amongst the young, After reading the other article about the youn g no longer having sex, maybe they need to allow dancing after Mid night .
