My wife just told me that she met a guy from Singapore living in Tokyo. He's an IT expert, married to a Japanese, speaks fine nihongo and hasn't been able to procure a job in months. So I'm not sure if they just don't hire foreigners or if the entire sector suffers from stagnation.

Based on that article, I'm guessing companies are just deciding to not bother hiring the people they need, to save money.
