…a protracted economic slowdown… which has reportedly resulted in many men struggling to hold down secure, full-time jobs.”
No money, no time — How can anyone support a family without either of these? Something is wrong with the work ethic in japan. Japan could fix their birthrate problem with one law. Limit work hours to 40 a week max. 80-100 hours a week is insane. The companies in Japan are financially raping Japanese citizens. I wish they wouldn’t put up with it. Just do a search for Japanese work hours and you’ll see for your self the horrible shifts they have.
