Japan and its Work Culture - Anonymous

This quote was added by kwixle
Work culture in Japan is brutal and unrelenting, so much so that "death by overwork" has earned its own title, karoshi, and one in ten employees work 100 hours of overtime every month. This has likely come into effect due to outdated rules of etiquette that once used to boost the productivity and quality of employees' workday. Today, however, this view of "more overtime = better worker" has resulted in a mad game of Last Man Standing in the everyday office.

What's the point of being alive if you have to work this much? I wonder what the suicide rate is. Maybe they are better at finding purpose in their work or something. I love Japanese culture, but I'm glad I don't live there. I wouldn't have made it past age 25.
