Japanese average monthly wages dropped in May 2016

"The average monthly wage among workers in Japan in May fell 0.2 percent from a year before to ¥267,933, down for the first time in 11 months, the Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry said Friday......The drop happened because the proportion of part-time workers in the total workforce rose 0.18 percentage point to 30.17 percent. Wages for part-timers are about one-fourth of those for full-time regular employees."
