Yesterday, Tokyo was struck by severe snowy weather.
As it was predictable, the authority called for strict caution. Citizens were encouraged not to go out unless necessary. Most of the public transportations were crippled.
Some people say that staying at home is not feasible since many companies force employees to go to work regardless of the weather status. They claim the necessity of official legislation for prohibiting work in such a situation.
I disagree with this opinion. People obeying company's order without any doubt are unlikely to examine official orders. They may be satisfied to the public announcement by the government. But later, they will make a complaint to the subject of the law. The issue is how to do, not whose order we should obey.
