働き方改革

働き方(はたらきかた)改革(かいかく)
Work style reform

Japan now is pushing a reform of working style. To promote work life balance, increase productivity. Cut long hours. Better benefits for part-time workers. Remote work. Diversity, et cetera.

Top 3 points are:

  • If you work more than 8 hours per day, Labour Act. 36 needs to be in place
  • Give people the annual paid holidays (besides bank holidays)
  • Equal work, equal pay

Let’s hope a future where we don’t use this word 過労死(かろうし) anymore.
