It's probably "life time employment." The perception that nearly all Japanese work for stable, team-oriented, paternalistic employers has been spread by the media over the years. To the extent this image ever held, it is remote from reality today. A seismic change has been taking place, with nearly a third of the Japanese labor force now classified as irregularly employed.
