What do you think about NEETpeople?

Postby syrup » Tue Nov 22, 2005 1:56 am

Recently NEET people have been increasing in japan."NEET" is an abbreviation for "Not in Employment, Education or Training". They become NEET not because they don't have enough money but because they decide to become NEET. Living expenses are supported by their parents. What do you think about NEET people?

I had never heard about that before, but I think it's ridiculous. I would be ashamed of myself if I did that :!: Although I guess the parents are guilty, aren't they? I mean, if they didn't tolerate it, it wouldn't be likely to happen.
