Statistics

The number of non-full-time employees in Japan has risen from 20% of the workforce in 1990 to almost 40% today. That means that 4 out 10 workers are part-time, dispatch, and temporary employees.

Moreover, in terms of pay, Japanese non-full-time employees earn considerably less than their peers in other countries.

The average salary and remuneration for Japanese non-full-time workers is 59% of full-time workers. That is, they earn 59 yen for doing the same work as a full-timer who earns 100.

Below are examples from other countries:

Germany: 79.3%
France: 89.1%
Sweden: 83.1%
