From The Sydney Morning Herald:

Japan General Estate Co said today it is planning to dole out thousands of dollars a month for its employees to go on the town in a bid to help communication.

Japanese companies routinely offer generous expense accounts to entertain clients, but the real estate company is going a step further by subsidising workers' drinking sessions with one another.

The company plans to offer managers who supervise 20 or more people up to 300,000 yen ($3,158) a month to take them out. Managers with fewer than 20 workers will get 200,000 yen ($2105), a company statement said.

I guess if Japan's suffering the same Monster Mortgage Meltdown the US is, boozing up will be perfunctory for characteristically smileytard realty agents. But I smell class action sexual harassment law suit around the corner. It's just too bad this will be blamed on the sauce.

Do you love booze as much as I do?
