“In a country faced with a crippling labor shortage, Japanese homemakers are now a hot commodity.
McDonald’s Japan announced on Sept. 5 it is beginning a two-month recruitment drive (link in Japanese) targeted at housewives under a slogan that roughly translates as “McDonald’s, no problem,” promising new hires both flexibility and good growth prospects. Prospective candidates who are concerned about returning to work after a hiatus will be able to experience what it’s like to work there by signing up online for half-hour trial sessions at various branches across the country and having a spin at making burgers and drinks, the fast-food chain offered. McDonald’s Japan said that students currently account (link in Japanese) for about half of its workforce while about 20% are recruited from homemakers. “Housewives are a valued labor force because they are very hospitable and are very conscious of cleanliness in our restaurants,” a McDonald’s human resources executive said.”
