Big Chainstores Troubled With Social Media Photos Of Their Stupid Part Timers

My monthly column on The Japan Times this month was about young part time workers photo troubles over Twitter.

It was not possible to post the inconsiderate photos there, so I put some links for people who want to see the photos.

A summary site someone collected the problematic photos [J] (because most case the posters ran away with shutting down their Twitter accounts). It has 3 new ones in last 2 days, so the movement keeps going.

These series of incidents are now on several major media. Today Nikkei took up the problem as huge risk for enterprises [J].

Many columnists and opinion bloggers attempted to analyze why. Newsweek Japan’s columnist Akihiko Reizei from New Jersey wrote that prank by youth is much more accepted as an elites’ culture, with referring Rookie Hazing and MIT Hacks. According to him, there are no such prank culture by low wagers in fast food industry. I showed some to Japanese Twitter users.
