A study by a private research institute estimates that over 1.4 million part-time or temporary workers in Japan worked less during the coronavirus pandemic, but have not been compensated.

Nomura Research Institute conducted an online survey of about 65,000 part-time or temporary workers during the five days beginning February 8, when a state of emergency was declared for 10 prefectures, including Tokyo.

When asked about working hours, 34 percent of men and 29 percent of women said that they had fewer shifts than before the pandemic.
