Karojisatsu — PSA & Must Read

Stephen, in his presentation, described a Japanese term called Karoshi – literally as “death from overwork.” I have seen this hundreds of times in our industry and I also have come close enough to understand the brink of Karoshi myself. … In the 1980s there was such a concern about Karoshi in Japan that the Japanese Ministry of Labour began to publish statistics on it. While most of the discussion around Karoshi deals with older workers dying from heart attaches and strokes, the Japanse have also identified “Kar?jisatsu” as someone who commits suicide due to this kind of mental stress. — Kar?jisatsu « IT Revolution IT Revolution
