    Well the only reason i could see people less people applying may be as their situations (such as student loans) may dictate that JET now simply does not pay enough for them to be able to participate anymore and still meet their financial obligations, I'm in a similar predicament as I have a mortgage but sure the drop is going to make things a little harder but it's certainly no game ender for me at least
    I probably post things that interest you

    99% of the JETs I know seem to pi** their pay away anyway.

    In the UK at least you would be very hard pressed to find this good a salary as a recent graduate - even with the cuts in pay from next year.

    I know a lot of people who piss their money away haha.

    Still got to take $$$ into account though, as with all decisions.

    For Canadians at the moment it's about 7000yen a month we pay and then get back. So you can imagine with a lower salary income tax will probablly be lower so maybe 6000 yen a month only now you will pay it out of pocket. Then you'll have residential which most are not compensated for though some are. so you're looking at 12 000 to 14 000 a month in taxes. And as a JET you'll pay no taxes back in Canada on this income.
