Nintendo set to raise employee base salary in Japan by 10%
A purse power-up
Following the results of Nintendo’s Q3 Fiscal Year results, the company has announced that base salaries for employees in Japan will see a 10% increase. This boost is being enacted due to rising costs from inflation.
According to VideogamesChronicle, Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa stated that this move is “important for long-term growth to secure the workforce.” There’s no doubt this move will push a few more people to consider careers at Nintendo going forward, at least when it comes to the Japanese offices.
Nintendo made this decision following an announcement from prime minister Fumio Kishida, who asked for Japanese companies to pay workers more due to inflation struggles.
