Working to Death

Scott North, Professor of Sociology, Osaka University Graduate School of Human Sciences

16-Oct-17 18:00

Working

We complain about being ‘worked to death’ but many of us don’t know what that really means until we take a hard look at what’s happening in Japan. There has been a surge in cases where people have died from logging ridiculous overtime hours, and it’s prompted calls for the government to solve this worrying issue of Karoshi; death from overworking. Professor Scott North from the University of Osaka talks to us about the work culture in Japan and whether the solution to the problem is beyond just adopting a change in mindset.
