Abstract: What happened to the traditional, long-term employment practices in Japan after the 1990s has remained unexplored. We take advantage of a micro data set from the Basic Survey on Wage Structure to provide new evidence regarding the years of tenure for Japanese male workers after a decade-long recession. While the practice of long-term employment is still alive among the workers who are already in the system, the proportion of workers who are not covered by the system has increased. These ongoing phenomena contribute to the bipolarization in the Japanese labor market.
