Special office for supporting the “Ice Seeing Ice Age” generation To be set up nationwide August 23, 4:37

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has decided to establish a special contact point that will provide consistent support from employment to establishment of the workplace in more than 60 hello work nationwide from the next fiscal year in an effort to strengthen support for the so-called “working ice age” generation. .

The “Employment Ice Age” generation went to society when the employment of new graduates was particularly difficult after the burst of the bubble. At that time, there were around 100,000 people who graduated without finding employment every year.

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare says that there are many people who are unable to get jobs as they wish and continue to work non-regularly.

As of last year, among those aged 35 to 44, there are 400,000 unemployed people who are not working and 500,000 people who want to become full-time employees but work non-regularly.

Under these circumstances, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has solidified its policy to set up specialized support windows at 63 locations in Japan next year.

At the counter, multiple staff members form a team to help with vocational training, introduce jobs that are likely to find employment, and consult on lifestyle planning.

After getting a job, we also support companies that have been accepted so that they can continue to work for a long time.

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has decided to record over 1.3 billion yen as an expense required for setting up such a window next year.
