Professional taxi hailer


Despite the recession, Japanese companies continue to employ armies of useless people. Elevator girls, crossing guards at places with street lights, and human pylons waving people around construction sites are just a few of the incredibly easy jobs you can get in Japan.

The guy in this picture is a taxi hailer. He waits at a taxi stand and guides people into their taxis. It looks like he’s opening the door for a passenger, but actually all the taxi doors in Japan are operated by the driver, so he just puts his hand on it as it swings open.
