Freeter

Just in time for a deep recession, Japan coins the "freeter" -- half "free" and half "arbeiter" -- to describe those with job, but not a lot of job. Perhaps spawned from "arbeit macht frei" (and nothing will ever surprise me from Japan) the interesting thing is the juxtaposition of the freeter against what they call Yuppies: the New Human Type.
