Why do we have to work harder?

Japan stadium worker's suicide was 'death by overwork' say parents

I've heard that many Japanese people in 50's had worked more than 200 hours of overtime per month, and most of them were not paid.
After the issue of overtime working unveiled, most of the companies have been paying attention to comply labor law and urge employees to restrict overtime work.
But, among construction companies, it seems to be common to violate the law.
I guess the reason is that many people from gangsters are engaged in construction companies. they don't feel sorry for ignoring the labor law.

I think that labor unions should focus on monitoring dubious companies like this.
