Japan Wants More Women in Construction. Pink Toilets May Not Be Helping. This, according to a New York Times look-see at how Japan is coping with a dwindling workforce.
The Japanese government has developed this helpful website in hopes of inspiring women to enter the labor pool in ways that are very new to Japanese culture. If you use Google Translate, you will learn that, as one woman puts it, “I prepared for it but I was confused by men …”
(Apparently they were confused by her too.)
Maybe Japan should consider having more women in the Department of Good Government Ideas ( Google Translation: 良い政府のアイデアの部門 )?
Just a little story for your Friday from all of us here at REOH, who think International Women deserve more than just one day 😉
