According to a report from Japan's "Daily News" on the 3rd, a kindergarten in the country requires female employees to conceive according to the time of admission In order to avoid multiple teachers getting pregnant at the same time, it will affect the operation of the kindergarten. In fact, there are more than one company with such wonderful regulations in Japan, which makes people worry about the future of the country.
According to reports, it is not uncommon to be forced to wait in line for pregnancy in a Japanese workplace. In general, people who work long hours have the right to "priority pregnancy". If someone breaks this "hidden rule", it will be complained and condemned by the employer. A cosmetics company in Tokyo issued a pregnancy schedule to female employees. A 26-year-old female employee was told that she would not be pregnant until she was 35.
This topic has aroused heated discussion among Japanese netizens. They generally believe that the phenomenon of declining birthrate in Japan is serious, and this phenomenon is even more worrying. Professor Masaru Osawa, a professor at Women's University of Japan, said employers must take effective measures to create an environment where employees can "freely conceive".
