For decades, Japan built their profits on producing goods and services cheaply and then exporting them at bargain-basement prices. Concurrently, the government set up trade barriers to foreign enterprises to protect small, unprofitable domestic businesses. But with the yen’s appreciation and the gradual hollowing out of domestic business -especially the manufacturing sector – that strategy began to go bust years ago. Many of the large corporations like Toyota have weathered the storm and thrived as an enterprise, but the jobs once available have shrunk dramatically and those available have lower wages and are of a term-contract or temporary nature.
