The capitalist tragedy of Fukushima liquidators

From Fukushima Diary (fragments):

Disposable Fukushima workers, “One person can only work for 30mins a day, 20 days a month, one month a life”


As far as they confirm, some workers are working under 20 subcontract companies, having 93% of salary exploited.

However, workers are getting paid less and less for tight budget. Currently, they are paid 90 ~130 USD a day.

Because some of the subcontract companies can no longer provide the workers with accommodation and food, those workers are having to leave Fukushima, but they have no place to go back.

Full story, including original Japanese language source, at Fukushima Diary.
