JAPANESE WORKERS WILL BEGIN STRIKING TO MAINTAIN JOBS AND WAGES . . . |
Ever partial to the big banks and corporations, the Japanese government has been anything but sympathetic to its working folks who had to suffer high rents, high food prices, lower wages, and now, widespread unemployment. The Japanese government took debt equal to 230% of its GDP not because it had to, but because it was a legal way to pay the banks and corporations hard-earned taxpayer money in the form of "interest" instead of "tribute". And what does the average Japanese have to show for all the burden of paying of such an astronomic debt? Higher rent, higher food prices, lower wages and fewer jobs STILL.
With the one trillion dollars of US treasury that the Japanese government holds, it could have paid off its own debt, but it did not, has not, and will not. How else to continue to manipulate the currency markets in order to devalue the Yen all the time, shortchanging its own people of cheaper foreign goods and services that are now over-priced and under-provided by the very banks and corporations holding their government under the bondage of debt?
Not that strikes will solve anything in the long run, but the average Japanese wage-earner has simply run out of options. The latest election gave them two choices: A rightwing LDP and a rightwing DPJ, both "rightly" beholden to the same banks and corporations sucking out the lifeblood from the Japanese people. And, Oh Yes, there is another way to make a living - create a new Imperial Japanese Army - pay the peons and starve the pawns even more, until there will be NO CHOICE but for every male in Japan to enlist, and send back some piddingly little pay to their families for their sustenance. Same as in the 80 years before final hurrah of the Japanese Empire in 1941. Without true productivity, inflation outside the military payscale will escalate until every other avenue of livelihood apart from the war economy will be impossible.
