Its pizza might or might not suck, but at least Domino's pays its employees well. Make that, one employee. In Japan. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the chain's arrival in the country, Domino's Japan has announced it will hire one lucky person at the rate of 2,500,000 yen, or about $31,000, for one hour's worth of work in December. "Basically it's anybody over 18, no questions about education or experience," a spokesman tells Reuters. "We're actually a little surprised by how much of a response it's getting." Compare this to Tourism Queensland's famous "Best Job in the World," which paid a guy $110,000 to take care of an island on the Great Barrier Reef for six months. Assuming a 40-hour week, that worked out to about $100 an hour, plus you had to put up with being stung by lethal jellyfish and whatnot. The Domino's stunt is getting lots of play in the media, but of course it might rub current employees the wrong way. And we all know what horrible things occur when a Domino's employee goes rogue.
