Japan Lays the Carpet for Temporary Foreign Workers

Japan Lays the Carpet for Temporary Foreign Workers
Working part time, over the counter at a convenience store is a very common practice performed by many international students of Japanese universities.   At Lawson’s training centers, young employees are trained and taught several ways of dealing with customers politely; before they are placed at its thousands of stores across Japan.

According to the company, the scheme was initiated to tackle the labor shortages in Japan. As per the census, Japan’s working age population decreases by almost 1 million every year. With an unemployment rate of 3 percent, there are currently 1.74 part-time jobs available for every candidate. 

Mitsuhiro Fukao, a professor of economics at Keio University said, “To some extent I think the pick-up in migration is a response to shortages of labor in Japan.” 

Lawson has started training the students at Vietnam a month before they leave for Japan to pursue their higher education. Considering the current labor market condition of Japan; with a constant decrease in working age population and 3 years of Abenomics stimulus boosting the requirement for trained staff, Lawson started training the students from Vietnam.

Lawson says “it is aiming to recruit 100 Vietnamese students in the first year of the scheme and more thereafter. It recruits only students who are coming to Japan anyway; it does not get involved with their studies, their tuition fees or their visas.”
