Top Customer Reviews
Kamata worked as a contract employee on the assembly line of a Toyota factory and tells of 12-to-16 hour shifts six days a week, managers who increased production quotas beyond the limit of human endurance with no regard to safety, and the consequenses of a draconian employment contract.
Compare this to Ben Hamper's "Rivethead," which provides a similar (more humorous) shop-floor view of the auto industry during approximately the same era, but at a GM Plant in Flint, Michigan.
The translator did an excellent job and the book is an easy an interesting read.
