|A Failure in the Prevalence of the Premium Friday|
So-called the "Premium Friday" was originally introduced with the expectation for the workers to work less (or raise productivity), balance their work and life, stimulate consumption, and have more time to spend with their spouses, which might hopefully lead to a rise in the birthrate.
The movement have definitely failed. It might be difficult that the government directly leads industries in such a way and make it successful.
It seems that not only its working institutions but basic values and ethics of work as well are on the table when we want to discuss a change. Additionally, not only Japanese workplaces but its society itself, including clients and consumers, should also change to accept the change: once-a-month unavailability after 3 o'clock on Friday are to be exempt from transactional responsibility.
Japan has established a very kind, comfortable "Omotenashi" society, which is, in other words, an excessively-serviced society. We are well accustomed to high-level services and take them for granted, or sometimes request even higher-level. Now, we need to compromise. Egoism of consumers (e.g. better price, speed, convenience, comfort, friendliness, politeness, and so forth) should be curbed to some extent.
Let's take some time, not too long though, to see people's generous, yet intrinsically important mind regarding life and happiness grows.
"I treasure my time off duty. Why don't you?" and vice versa.
In this way, Japanese working environment will improve.
