Japan’s newest holiday — ‘Dew Day’?

The real rest-of-the-story is that “Mountain Day” is another just another corporate excuse for layoffs and save money. Since more than 40% of Japan’s workers are on “part-time” and subcontracts, all holidays are unpaid. All these so-called “holidays” mean for the ever-growing numbers of poor office temps is yet another day without pay. Basically, it’s a 20-30% pay cut in the month due to all the holidays (since Japanese workers expected to make up for all the lost work with unpaid overtime).
