 Vietnamese interns are cheated to clean up nuclear pollutants in Japan: a subsidy of 120 yuan a day


The 24 year old Vietnamese man said he would never come to Japan if he knew he would carry out his internship in the vicinity of a nuclear leak in 2011. The man said, a Japanese construction company in Iwate County of Morioka City hired him to Japan as an intern, but did not tell him he will travel around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant to purify pollutants. The man arrived in Japan in September 2015, and the contract he signed shows the work of "engineering machinery, dismantling and civil engineering". During the period from October 2015 to March 2016, he did not receive any notification about the purification of nuclear radiation. He was told only to go to the roads and nearby houses in Fukushima county to remove dust. After he saw someone measuring the level of radiation in the workplace, he began to doubt his work. After contacting the trade union organization that helped foreign workers in Japan, he found his work was dangerous. In 1993, Japan began to implement a foreign labour training program aimed at imparting working skills to developing countries. But it has also led to criticism, which many believe is a cover for the introduction of cheap labour in industries such as agriculture and manufacturing. In addition to the monthly salary of about 150 thousand yen (8952 yuan RMB) as a foreign student, the men get only 2000 yen (about 120 yuan) of the extra purification allowance per day, less than the environmental ministry standard of 6600 yen (393 yuan) 1/3. According to the trade union, this is the first known case for foreign students to participate in the purification work. The Ministry of law and the Ministry of health and welfare of the Ministry of Health issued a statement on the 14 day that the decontamination work was not in line with the purpose of the intern program. "If the content of the training is very different from the goals to be achieved, it may be an illegal act," said the entry to the state authority.
