The Japanese government will pay thousands of dollars to foreigners who work in Japan to leave and must agree never to seek to work in Japan again.

Japanís offer, extends to hundreds of thousands of blue-collar Latin American immigrants.  It is designed to encourage them to leave the country, which is in a recession. So far, at least 100 workers and their families have agreed to leave.

Do you think this is a good idea?

That's a crazy idea. I mean I don't know if it's good or not because I can't get my head around it. I don't see what's wrong with it if it's voluntary. I can imagine the press now though if Labour tried to introduce it in the UK.

If the Government want to pay me lots of money to emigrate to Australia then that would be fine with me  Roll Eyes.

How can you make people leave the country?  I would proboably never go to the country in the first place, knowing that I might be asked to leave if my job was gone.

I think I may have misunderstood this. Is it migrant and foreign workers then that they are basically paying to leave the country?

That's right Bob. It's migrant foreign workers not there own workers and citizens. I would put an LOL here but I hate that LOL punctuation. It would be crazy if they were trying to get rid of their own people.

I think it will be more difficult for people to leave if they have been in the country for several years.  They should propose this policy to those who have recently come to the country and are out of work.  It seems they have the least amount of ties to the country and more likely will leave.

I agree Sunny. If someone has been there years they are probably settled in a home and maybe even have a family. No way they will leave just because of a pay off. Isn't Japan supposed to be a great place to live? Has anybody here been there?

Do you know what? I feel sad to admit this but I know nothing about Japan. China is (allegedly) a Communist country right? Communist and capitalist at the same time though it seems. How about Japan? Are they a democracy? I feel ashamed at my lack of knowledge on this issue.
