Canon Sends Employees Home to Have Sex

I swear folks, this is not even a joke.

In a country where 12-hour workdays are common, the electronics giant has taken to letting its employees leave early twice a week for a rather unusual reason: to encourage them to have more babies.

Japan is in the midst of an unprecedented recession, so corporations are being asked to work toward fixing another major problem: the country’s low birthrate.

Canon, I salute you! You are officially the coolest company in Japan.

  1. I’m sorry…I don’t see how one relates to the other. How does more babies = improving the economy? There aren’t enough jobs for people already…how does making more people help?

    • It doesn’t.
      Because of one problem, they’re using it as a excuse to fix another.
      Because there isn’t any work, use the spare time to fix the lack of babies. They ain’t trying to fix the recession with it.
