Drop in Average Salary

Figures released yesterday showed that the average annual private-sector salary in Japan has dropped by 70,000 yen from last year to 4.54 million yen. The major reasons given were the increase in part-time workers and a drop in bonuses. The average salary for a male worker was 5.58 million yen, while that for female workers was 2.78 million yen. As a comparison, the minimum after-tax salary on the JET Program is 3.6 million yen.
