Like anywhere else in the world, Japan is seeing more precarious work and a widening income gap. Unstable working conditions often get forced upon women, the elderly, and society’s weakest members.

Hear reports of strikes and collective actions from a union of elderly women working at Tokyo subway kiosks and the Japan Postal Workers Union, and meet the labor lawyers association that’s supporting organizing and education.
