    It's harder to just fire people in Japan if you don't have definitive proof of them having poor performance and/or causing problems.
    A huge amount of corporate labor in Japan is just people dicking around doing frickall because they basically can't get fired.

    japs love working
    they'll sacrifice their lifes for the company if they have to
    therefore no need to lay off your workers, unless they die from overworking

      funny how every single "b-b-b-b-b-b-but" is always either squareshit, crapcom or sega
      the first two are glorified westoid companies and have been for a decade now while the latter was literally founded by westoids

        the japs are incapable of innovation. Their entire culture was created by westoids.

      The games are dead but those people are still employed. I can't say the same for Tango Gameworks.

    Japan has very progressive labor laws. It's actually very difficult for companies to fire someone unless they can prove in court that either:
    the employee can't do the job anymore (injury or something)
    they failed to meet their responsibilities
    their job was or became redundant to someone else's

    So you can't lay people off just because you think the money for their team would be better invested somewhere else, or to simply absorb and kill competition, which is what US companies do a lot. If you do, a Japanese employee is mandated to be given 30 days notice (so no same-day firings) and can easily challenge the decision, which can go all the way to Japan's supreme court. Companies are also limited in the number of cases they are allowed to 3, so they are incentivized to pursue settlements and arbitration that the employees find acceptable.

    This type of thing is why Elon Musk tried to fire all the Japanese Twitter employees and couldn't the way he did the US ones.

    In Japan you're not allowed to just casually lay off people for no reason, you actually have to have a reason.

    American and western corporate culture is moronic and soulless. Most Jap CEOs see themselves more or less equal to their workers since they're more collectivists. Even the most egotistical ones give credit to their subordinates. Meanwhile corporate America is placing value on how much money an individual can make rather than keeping up their pace. CEOs will always fear their workers.
