How to solve current labor market imbalance?

 

“First, it is important to regulate long work hours. If we stop excessive overwork, it might create jobs for unemployed workers. We also need to reform unemployment benefit system so that unemployed feel more stable. Then, people can leave abusive workplace and be unemployed rather than killed. For temp workers, we need to provide more stable employment and raise minimum wage so that they can have more stable life.”
