Well Japan has big problems as I'm sure you know with Social safety nets for non workers. Osaka lost about 460,000 jobs since Lehman Brothers Holdings collapsed since 2008.
Mostly Japanese who were 1. bankrupt disowned by family 2. lost job / all money 3. drunks
I think they hit their historical high for jobless rates since 1953-54 in 2009, which was actually a year sooner than what was being projected. That number has since gone down a bit but I believe it's actually starting to surge back up again.
I read a number somewhere that 77% of the unemployed people do not receive benefits, which compare with 57% in the US.
Of course none of it compares to places like Subsaharran Africa. A friend of mine who served in the Foreign Legion was stationed over in Djibouti. He once told me that the men of these regions are incredibly lazy. They mainly depend on the women to do most of the work. He said he really only felt bad for the children.
