Even though I have been always somehow keeping a journal, this is the first time I have been trying to write everyday. I don’t know what it will lead me, but I think I’ll just go with it.

The sentence we learned in the English lesson made me think how the companies in Japan are not treating their employees well. The teacher told us about Facebook’s 40,000 dollar baby bonus, when yesterday P just told me that T quit his job.

T is an excellent worker, and he worked at least 12 years in this well known automobile company. That doesn’t make sense to me because if a person is a good employee, he is supposed to enjoy working in a trustworthy company. A big company should be able to provide its employees with job satisfaction and security, but instead, this diligent worker was suffering from long term depression from his bullying manager.

T has a wife and 2 daughters to provide for. Maybe a big company cannot take care of its employees like a small-scaled company, but it’s definitely a big loss for the company to have a good worker quitting like this. I can’t wait to hear more about T’s story.
