I was quite surprised when I got this news.
Japan wants to start accepting more foreign workers from April next year, the prime minister Shinzo Abe actually said a few months ago, as Japan faces a serious labor crunch across many of its industries.
With the plan, the government is considering reorganizing the Immigration Bureau and setting up an affiliated agency that will solely be in charge of handling low-skilled foreign workers.
What do the ordinary Japanese citizens think about the news?
A big thanks to all the interviewees for sharing the opinions.
