Okinawa employees are paid very poorly

Date Posted: 2007-02-19

Okinawa wages have gone from worst to simply bad.

The Prefecture now ranks next to last in terms of being the worst in paying its employees. Last year Okinawa was in last place. The climb from the cellar was minimal, with new figures showing Okinawa wage earners average 222,600 a month, slightly ahead of Aomori Prefecture with 21,700.

Across Japan, the highest wages are in Tokyo, where the average worker earns 375,000 per month. The statistics come from the Ministry of Health and Welfare. The report shows the wages in Koto, Osaka, Chiba, Aichi and Hyogo running in the 320,000~350,000 range.

Okinawa remains the worst place to get paid a bonus, though, with annual averages of 37,000. That compares with Tokyo worker bonuses averaging 1,287,000, and more than 1 million being paid in bonuses to workers in Osaka, Kanagawa Prefecture and other high population areas.

The vast majority of Okinawa companies, about 98%, are small to medium size units with low salaries and bonuses. The companies survive because expenses remain low, as well.
