The article discusses the policies and practices that Japan developed to cope with its labor problems, and how these can be useful ideas for the United States. In this regard, the following topics are discussed: work-entry problems; similarities in Japanese and American education; contrasting views of school work transition; linkages between school and work. Three aspects of the Japanese system are examined in terms of workability in the U.S., and these are: employers' linkages to schools; school nominations; emphasis on grades. The policy implications of the Japanese system are addressed.
