Karoshi – where your job is so intense it kills you. Modern Japanese Lunacy. 

No wonder they can’t procreate enough. No time and no energy. 
In a country where the majority of workers will rarely switch companies or careers once they’ve secured a position, and have among the lowest allotted annual leave benefits of any country in the world, employees are notorious for their unhealthy working hours.

Almost a quarter of companies there have admitted that some of their employees work well beyond hours, with some companies admitting their staff did more than 100 hours of overtime a month. 

The World Bank found Japan to be one of the least generous countries in the world for paid leave.

Employees in Japan on average are only entitled to 10 days’ paid leave, and zero paid holidays. Many won’t use even half their allotted days off for the year. NZ Herald
