it, Japan. Nurses who go to 'Western' countries, don't have to learn
kanji, do get better benefits (including for maternity) more holidays, and
they and their children get accepted as locals by the majority, not called 'Gaijin' for generations. Unless you fix those terms, Japan, the best won't be
going to you, if many do at all. You need these nurses desperately, as only these other Asian countries have enough young to become nurses, unlike Japan, and only someone from a poorer country might consider taking the shit a nurse does in a Japanese workplace for the money offered. God knows most Japanese won't: those I knew were out by thirty, either by marriage or burn-out.
Of course, what Japanese society still expects is to poach the skills and labour of their foreigners, which we do in 'the West'too, certainly. The difference, of which these foreign labourers cannot be unaware, is the Japanese want us all to fuck off and go home once their use for us is done. Should they go to one of the 'Western' countries, they can stay as long as they are employed, and longer than that once they get a permanent visa* and then citizenship, collect retirement benefits they paid into, among otherbenefits, and otherwise get as rewarded for their work and sacrifices as anyone else, locally born or not. Which would you choose? Doesn't take too long to figure out.
Not to mention Japan has no economic future to speak of to come to start a family in.
*Just how do you get one of these in Japan, unless you're a media personality who tells the Japanese how unique they are? Does even marriage give me permanentresidency? Rather doubt. And citizenship? Ha! Who would I have to fuck? Certainly someone other than my wife, and certainly not as aged as I am now...
