Comment: Well...he's Japanese. Taking a bus to work, joining his employees for meal, and having an open-space office, is not unusual. That's part of Japanese work culture. I've seen it all in a few Japanese companies in Malaysia. But to take a pay cut so his company can survive and his employees remain employed, is noteworthy. How many of the world' CEOs - including ours - have done that? Usually, when a company is in trouble, retrenchment or voluntary separation scheme (VSS) is one of the first remedies.
