ABSTRACT

This paper aims to explore employment support policies in Osaka Prefecture and Toyonaka City and to examine their significance. Since 2001 the Prefecture has introduced Local Employment Support Program to all local governments in the province, thereby promoting the consultation, training and job placement for needy people. In so doing, the City came to know on what condition the needy in the local community have been, and began to implement several employment support programs. The City has tried to not only place the unemployed to a job but also to let them work with some assistance from the local government as well as the workplace where they are employed. This case study suggests what effects the new system for the self-support of needy person by Japanese government may have and what significances this form of employment support programs may have in the social significance of self-help and work.
