The paper discusses how traditionally, the national labor movement of Japan has been repeatedly controlled by the political factions within the nation. The paper asserts that this has been especially true in modern times, as labor unions that served the needs of management, rather than the workers were created. The paper describes how workers in Japan were consequently left with low wages, no benefits and unions that only worked in conjunction with management, leaving the multitude of Japanese workers to accept their plight. The paper then discusses how Oaks (1988) indicates that even when the workers of Japan have attempted to gain strength in numbers through the creation of a national labor movement, the government has reacted by creating their own opposition forces, preventing the changes that the labor force in Japan has long sought.
