After limited success in convincing companies to raise wages, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has turned to improving the treatment of the nation’s legion of temporary employees, who make up more than a third of the workforce, Bloomberg reports. Full-time, non-regular workers earn more than a third less than their permanent counterparts while the pay gap in hourly wages for part-timers is even bigger. Non-regular employees also receive fewer benefits. Abe plans to fix those inequities by requiring companies to treat non-regular workers as well as permanent employees.
