Working rather than dating
Wow! Interesting statistic on “freshmen” in Japan, Inc. I wonder if this has anything to do with
More than 80 percent of new recruits who started working this spring would choose to work if asked to do overtime rather than go out on a date, according to a survey, possibly reflecting a shift in young people’s values under the harsh economic conditions.
A record-high 82.8 percent of 3,200 new employees polled who participated in job training offered by the Japan Productivity Center, a nonprofit organization based in Tokyo, between March and April said they would prioritize work, while 16.6 percent said they would choose a date over extra work. I wonder if this has anything to do with it?
