    People wait for Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's stumping speech for Sunday's upper house election on a pedestrian overpass in Matsudo, near Tokyo July 26, 2007. The "working poor" feels left behind in Japan's economic recovery the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) is touting as one of its major achievements as it heads into Sunday's election for parliament's upper house. Widespread anxiety among the low-paid in Japan, where the minimum wage averages 673 yen ($5.59) an hour, is one source of rising support for opposition parties, almost all of whom have promised to do more to help those on low incomes.
