Freeter is a Japanese expression for people who lack full-time employment or are unemployed, excluding housewives and students. The word freeter or freeta was first used around 1987 or 1988 and is thought to be a portmanteau of the English word free (or perhaps freelance) and the German word Arbeiter ("labourer").
