Preview

Examines changes that have been taking place in the treatment of regular full-time workers in Japan. Among the developments examined are the introduction of performance-related pay, flattening of the age-earnings profile, specialist training, and shorter working hours. Looks at trends in labour mobility and concludes that long-term employment is still the rule for the majority of these employees.
