31 Democratic and Republican Senators Call for More Foreign Workers to Replace Blue-Collar Americans last month. The plan is to work us all to death or eliminate us and have nonvoters, aliens and illegal aliens come in and take jobs at half the cost and then let these people vote, too. This plot to eliminate or reduce citizens to starvation levels or locked out of the systems…is how the super elites want to control power over us all. And in Japan, the LDP has announced that employers can’t work their staff for more than 100 hours of overtime a month…which makes for a 70-80 hour week!
Voters went for Trump to stop this and he is now backing off after all the elites and powerful people running our systems attacked him nonstop. As he surrenders to them all, they cease trying to kill him. I don’t like this but can’t blame him for surrendering, it is hard to resist this level of violent attacks.
The bipartisan request comes three months after the shocking November vote pressured GOP leaders to slash the H-2B visa program from a one-year high of 264,000 visas back down to the long-standing level of 66,000 visas.
Yes, he did promise to do this and did this and the power players in DC are freaking out an they will move heaven and earth to foist this on us and stop the hiring of citizens. They will resort to murder, if necessary.
The request to Department of Homeland Security John Kelly also comes as a claimed shortage of H-2B is prompted recruiters to find, hire, train and retain some of the millions of young underemployed men and women who could fill the many low-status seasonal jobs in landscaping, golf course maintenance, cleanup in restaurants, seafood processing, and hotel cleaning which are often allocated to H-2B contract-workers.
Yikes! You can’t intimidate citizens at work like foreign ‘guest’ workers! The super rich are who are hiring these aliens. Will Trump surrender on this issue, too? I am betting he will. It is always easier to ‘go with the flow’ than to stop a tsunami. Now on to Japan, a country where the elites are literally killing off their own people but in this place, they don’t want any stinking aliens, they want ROBOTS.
First a look at my own blog from over a year ago: Working Japanese People To Death While Running Giant Government Deficits | Culture of Life News
Government debt has skyrocketed since 1993 and is higher and higher except for four years, now very high. The tax collection system has begun to collapse, not grow. Worker’s wages are down, down, down and they are being literally worked to death with required 80 hours a month overtime with zero pay for this free work! Insane indeed. Japanese corporations are filthy rich and the workers are extremely poor and live in tiny hovels with near zero free time.
The very same people who did this to Japan and the US are the people who use offshore banking to hide their wealth as we see in today’s news. Japan’s rich don’t need to dodge taxes because the government doesn’t even bother taxing them in the first place. Japan Government Takes On Its Deficit-Ridden Finances – WSJ
From today’s news: Death by overwork: Japan’s 100-hour overtime cap sparks anger – Abe and his gang ‘fix’ the 80 hour work week by making it much worse! Japan Today Yes, the ‘fix’ is to make things hideously worse. It sets it up so businesses can legally work everyone to death.
Workaholic Japan has unveiled its first-ever plan to limit overtime, but critics want to give it the boot, saying an “outrageous” 100-hour-a-month cap will do nothing to tackle karoshi, or death from overwork.
“I thought the government was finally going to tackle the issue…. But this has turned out to be (a) step backward rather than a step forward.”
Victims of years and years of this sort of vicious abuse were furious with Abe and his gang.
Teranishi’s husband was the manager of a struggling soba noodle restaurant in Kyoto when he committed suicide in the mid-nineties after suffering from depression blamed on long working hours.
“My husband worked for a total of 4,000 hours a year without weekends off. At most, he had two days off a month,” she said, adding that he was pressured to work more by his recession-hit employer.
“He was depressed. He told me he couldn’t sleep or eat. I asked him to take a day off every morning, but he still went to work.”
Currently, Japanese firms can make full-time employees work far beyond the usual 40 hours a week during busy periods.
Overtime is viewed as a sign of dedication at many firms, even if Japanese workers’ productivity lags behind that of their US and European counterparts.
Of course, productivity collapses. How can someone be ‘productive’ when they are grossly overworked, nonstop? The Japanese overlords do this for other reasons: workers can’t give trouble in any way or form if they are under the eye of the bosses virtually all their waking hours and..they have no time to socialize with each other or do anything political. They go home and collapse.
Readers today in Japan blew up over this news:

100 OVERTIME hours per month? Is this correct? That would mean 25 hours of overtime per week, 5 hours onto each day, or a 7 day working week with no days off, and it would be legal?!

This is Japan. Why did anything think anything would actually change? What’s more, this is only the legal limit (which is already illegal) for LOGGED hours. So, companies will just demand employees log less, but still work the same overtime. But let’s say the “limit” is strictly adhered to at 100 overtime hours a month. If someone works a 9-5 job, Monday to Friday, that means they could be forced to work five extra hours every business day, meaning it becomes 9-10, or 13 hours. That does not include commuting time, nor does it take into the account that pretty much NO company in Japan allows staff to go home at 5:00 p.m.
This is simply lip-service, and very bad lip-service. It is government mandated slavery.
And all of this is old stuff. I have many stories about this issue. From 2015, two years ago: Abe Change Rules Working Japanese Men To Death…Making It Even Worse | Culture of Life News
Working to death in Japan: Health warning over ‘no overtime’ law ‹ Japan Today: Japan News and Discussion has all the ugly details how the business lobby in Tokyo is changing the laws insidiously so they won’t have to pay for any overtime, ever, if they pay a salary instead of by the hour. The comments are most illuminating:

Consider this alternative: If Japan not only reversed this idea, but instead upped the overtime rate to 50% instead of the current 25%, then did both a crackdown to enforce it as well as for taking full vacations, and then did a publicity campaign about this to prevent worker compliance in secretly allowing it, then this would have a wave of Abenomic effects.
-People would leave on time and maybe spend it with their family. Families would benefit, more sex would happen as people wouldn’t be so tired (so up the population figures) and there’d be potentially less domestic family issues.
The bankers and industrialists don’t care if this kills off families. They move their capital and production elsewhere! The Nazis had ‘national socialism’ which was supposed to help build families again only…Hitler used this to run massive wars that killed millions of Germans and many millions of victims of Naziism, one of the more horrible regimes, ever. The Soviet system was the same: millions dead, families shattered, society collapsing.
And way back in 2012, I wrote about all this: Free Trade Is Literally Killing Japanese Men | Culture of Life News
At the time, Koji used to start work at 5 a.m., pick up all his packages by 7 a.m. and drive through the Kanto region delivering them until about 9 p.m. He received approximately 200,000 yen a month as take-on pay. There was no overtime allowance, nor bonus...He also briefly worked at printing and automobile parts factories, but was fired after half a year for declining to work on his days off…At the company where he next started working, the many hours of overtime was considered normal. In summer last year, Koji was diagnosed with depression and quit the job. His unemployment insurance will expire in mid-January.
In Japan, there is no overtime protection. The owners can work their employees literally to death and do this regularly. This merciless system is finally kicking the stuffing out of the males to the point, they are giving up as we can plainly see. Working ridiculous hours to get double the rate of welfare is no boon. It is the equivalent of working two jobs to earn more than not working at all!
Back to today’s news: nothing has changed in Japan. The elites still ruthlessly run the joint. Over 50% of Japanese young people expect to never get married! Families are collapsing, the birth rate is falling through the floor.
Yes, an LDP member actually suggested this as a solution to the declining birthrate in Japan! Over 30,000 Japanese kill themselves every year for the last 14 years. Poverty rates have doubled. Birth rates continue to fall. Germany, Russia and Japan all have below replacement birth rates and this is tied to a global economic mess which began six years ago in the West but the predecessor, the BIG blow-out depression coupled with ZIRP rates began way back in the early 1990’s in Japan and today Japan remains mired in this depression and is using the typical way out which is fascist imperialist expansion and suicidal wars, something the US is choosing to do, too. Oh, and high government debt shooting ever upwards which the US has also aped.
Instead of taking this crisis seriously, the Japanese politicians have fascist solutions due to the fact that they are right wing fascists: Politician proposes giving newlyweds pierced condoms so the women can be raped by the state and thus, produce more soldiers for imperialism. Selling false birth controls is pretty evil. Sigh.
