Episode 28: Paid leave
How much paid leave do you usually take?
Listen as three Kyodo News journalists -- Yamaguchi-san, Ed and Su-san -- talk about how a recent government survey found that a record share of private-sector workers in Japan took paid leave in 2022 at 62.1 percent. Listen as they discuss the challenges Japanese society faces in getting that percentage higher and how paid leave is viewed in other cultures.
