Pregnancy shifts in Japan – synchronizing biological clocks


With a population crisis like Japan has, one would hopefully encourage couples to be active to mitigate the problem. A private daycare company in Aichi Pref has lambasted one of the staff for getting pregnant before her turn! While we’ve heard of seniority based systems for remuneration, it is unbelievable to think that a company allowed staff to set up a pregnancy roster. The real downside would be if the couple before your turn had issues conceiving. In any event the insanity of such a policy shows how not even one’s private life choices are respected by some.
