To Make a Deal With The Devil Will Cost You Your Life, But a Deal with a Company Requires...

Kansai Culture Black companies 2020.03.09
Unfortunately, there are still companies that make you overwork in Japan. A bar in Kyoto had its own thoughts about it and made a comment on its blackboard.

Let's admit it.

There are companies in Japan called black companies【ブラック企業:ぶらっくきぎょう】, those companies which make you work over hours and don't pay you the adequate salary to match the time and effort you have devoted.
There's a movie about them and even unofficial annual nominations made.
We even have hashtags (#ブラック企業)for them.

Recently a bar in Kyoto wrote a short comment about these companies on their blackboard and has created a little buzz trend on twitter.

With the words
命と引き換えに
願い事を叶える
悪魔に対して
命を削るくせに
何もしてくれない
ブラック企業って
悪魔以上だよな
written on the blackboard in the image.

Translation:
In exchange for your soul, demons will do you diabolic favour,
meanwhile, some companies do nothing for you no matter you sacrifice your life, 
isn't that worse than a devil.

with a comment saying,
幽霊より怖いのは人間、なんて言いますけど。
(As some say, humans are scarier than ghosts.)

Some retweeted to this saying; 
- but you do receive salary from black companies as well.
You just shouldn't really convert it into hourly rates.
- At least the devil won't state lies on their contracts or break their promises about them...
- Exactly!

Do you know anyone who works for a black company?
What are your thoughts...?
