Private labor contractors in Japan are "recruiting" homeless men and men to work in the disaster area of the destroyed Fukushima nuclear power plant
, taking advantage of their desperation to pay them less than minimum wage and with no proof that their health is being protected.
In a devil's bargain between organized crime bosses and the nation's top construction firms, laborers are exploited by these contractors as they take in state funds for the cleanup
, giving them miniscule cuts for the dangerous untrained work and then subtracting more for food and lodging.
We call on the government of Japan to investigate this shady practice, ensuring these workers are properly protected from the radiation and being well-compensated for the dangerous work.
Don't let these companies keep preying on the homeless to expose them to radiation
— write the Japanese government now!
PETITION TO JAPANESE GOVERNMENT: Protect your country's homeless from being exploited and exposed to dangerous radiation levels. Investigate construction companies to make sure they're paying a fair wage and training and protecting their workers.
