Fascinating... I'm genuinely intrigued by this. I have heard of "freeters" in the Japanese economy rounding out the share of young un- or under-employed people, can you share more about what you've come across in your experience about this?
Quote from maninjapan:
Yes, it really needs to be seen to be believed. They have old men who probably should have retired years ago working as 'security guards' at stores and working with road work crews to stand there waving on traffic, when they are fixing a footpath..... on a back street..... at 2am in the morning.......
And that isn't even an exaggeration. You only have to walk around for a day here and it becomes quickly apparent as to how they keep their unemployment % so low
Thanks, I appreciate your post.
