The frontline of Japan’s privatization steamroller is the post office.

Before quitting he asked Japan Post to offer more regular full-time positions to its non-regular workforce. Kamei’s target was 100,000 ... market research, surveys and trends

ILAB - By the Sweat and Toil of Children: Overview
A survey of child labor worldwide finds that children are working in considerable numbers throughout many regions of the world.

Paid to work? | Ask MetaFilter
Last time it happened, I traveled to another European country for a weekend but wasn't paid for it (although they did pay for the trip and accommodation). Should I ask to be paid for this week-end? Or for days off? I'm currently on salary. In the US, if you're on salary you really can't be paid overtime, so they usually grant comp. time for work on weekends (as far as I know). As for 2 days comp. time for the future. I wouldn't imagine you'd be paid extra for it, but as jdl says, you could ask for 1 or 2 days in lieu - that's not unreasonable. If you're contracted to work the normal ...
