office worker reveals soul-crushing past paycheck for 171 hours of overtime
 

 

“My wages when I was 22 years old. For 171 hours of overtime, after deducting taxes, I got 227,000 yen. (US$2,067) Every month I did at least 120 hours of overtime, and I never received a bonus. [Many Japanese companies bonuses to workers twice a year, in June and December.] I lived in the company dorms and I only visited family twice a year. My annual salary was 2,800,000 yen. (US$25,875) After taxes, it became 1,790,000 yen. (US$16,303) When I brought this up [to my supervisor], I was told: “You don’t know anything about how cruel society can be. Even if your wage is low, you need to come to work and suck it up.” And with that, I quit that job right there.”

- Japan's medium income is $29,798 a year. which is still low for there work culture.

- a new law was passed to limit overtime work to 45 hours a month.

So i watch a lotta action anime and you notice a theme. Every1 whos righteous isnt scared to work. The guy who tries to play the system never wins ( unless he's a "genius")

It kinda gives you an idea of their culture. Working is something they just accept. Corporations are the same everywhere so they run that culture ragged. American culture almost inherently protect us from that.

Maybe I'm readin you wrong but idk bro isn't that working sh*t a very large part of our culture also? College isn't pressed upon us so we can go out there and own our own businesses, it's pressed upon us so we can go out there and be a successful member of the workforce.
Think about it, when you meet someone for the first time one of the first few questions you get asked is "what do you do?". Check the context in that statement. No need to mention "for work" cause that's implied and everyone knows what you mean when you ask that. Why do we all have to be doing something? It's as if we find it absolutely farfetched and impossible to just be living and enjoying yourself

That's pretty much on par with most developed countries. That's a few thousands more than most single and unattached people in Toronto, Canada in 2019.

If you're not able to get over $70,000 a year on your own you will within a family of two or more people.

As someone that lives here. I myself have been self employed and free lance for most of my life. I will say this tho and i always explain this to people back west. A day in Japan is like a half a week in America. Just had my father in laws 葬式(funeral and shinto creamation). All the family came down and we did it in 3 days it was super surreal to me because i just saw him the night before looking at me talking to me on his death bed.

This is why a lot of kids that come out here thinking teaching english is the lick can’t even hang hapf a year the work culture here is wild. Glad I am established in what I do, but honestly to live here in Japan i would work at a Gyomu Suupa. The quality of life here is just so fu*king amazing. Also inflation is not as bad here and taxes are still relatively low. A lot cheaper than my last couple years in the Bay area i will tell ya what.

The expensive to live in Japan sh*t is mostly a myth perpetuated by tourists or people from out west living here on measley JEt wages. Lets compare someone working to a dollar store in California to one that works at a dollar shop here in Osaka for instance.

Bro, you always come with that good analysis.

I am in the Bay and finally have a date where I expect to move out there- June 2021.

You've helped me out before with some solid advice, so I gotta ask again:

You got any cities you'd recommend living in? I am eyeing Tokyo, but if there's a better option, I am down for it.
