Subsidies offered for giving part-timers full-time jobs

Under the stimulus plan, the government would offer up to ¥1 million to small and midsize businesses and ¥500,000 to larger companies every time they make a part-time employee a full-time worker before their contract is terminated.

It is also considering granting job creation subsidies to firms that hire those who are facing job cancellations or are unable to get a job, including college students.
