Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
While the demographic crisis is real in Japan, it drives me nuts every time I see stories about "the desperate need to import foreign workers" without mentioning the fact that more and more Japanese young people are being caught in a no-win treadmill of minimally paid contract work and brutal overtime, and the withdrawal from the labor force that this causes - not that hard when so many young people live with their parents well into their 20's anyway.
