Meet The Minimum-Wage Homeless Who Are "Cleaning Up" Fukushima (For The Yakuza)

Tyler Durden's picture





 

"We're an easy target for recruiters," one homeless man explains. "We turn up here with all our bags, wheeling them around and we're easy to spot. They say to us, are you looking for work? Are you hungry? And if we haven't eaten, they offer to find us a job." As Reuters exposes, 3 years after the earthquake and tsunami that caused the meltdown at Fukushima's nuclear facility, Northern Japanese homeless are willing to accept minimum wage (from yakuza-based entities) for one of the most undesirable jobs in the industrialized world: working on the $35 billion, taxpayer-funded effort to clean up radioactive fallout across an area of northern Japan larger than Hong Kong.

 

 

Via Reuters,

Seiji Sasa hits the train station in this northern Japanese city before dawn most mornings to prowl for homeless men.

 

He isn't a social worker. He's a recruiter. The men in Sendai Station are potential laborers that Sasa can dispatch to contractors in Japan's nuclear disaster zone for a bounty of $100 a head.

 

"This is how labor recruiters like me come in every day,"

 

...

 

It's also how Japan finds people willing to accept minimum wage for one of the most undesirable jobs in the industrialized world: working on the $35 billion, taxpayer-funded effort to clean up radioactive fallout across an area of northern Japan larger than Hong Kong.

 

...

 

In January, October and November, Japanese gangsters were arrested on charges of infiltrating construction giant Obayashi Corp's network of decontamination subcontractors and illegally sending workers to the government-funded project.

 

In the October case, homeless men were rounded up at Sendai's train station by Sasa, then put to work clearing radioactive soil and debris in Fukushima City for less than minimum wage, according to police and accounts of those involved. The men reported up through a chain of three other companies to Obayashi, Japan's second-largest construction company.

 

Obayashi, which is one of more than 20 major contractors involved in government-funded radiation removal projects, has not been accused of any wrongdoing. But the spate of arrests has shown that members of Japan's three largest criminal syndicates - Yamaguchi-gumi, Sumiyoshi-kai and Inagawa-kai - had set up black-market recruiting agencies under Obayashi.

 

"We are taking it very seriously that these incidents keep happening one after another," said Junichi Ichikawa, a spokesman for Obayashi. He said the company tightened its scrutiny of its lower-tier subcontractors in order to shut out gangsters, known as the yakuza. "There were elements of what we had been doing that did not go far enough."

 

...

 

Reuters found 56 subcontractors listed on environment ministry contracts worth a total of $2.5 billion in the most radiated areas of Fukushima that would have been barred from traditional public works because they had not been vetted by the construction ministry.

 

...

 

"If you started looking at every single person, the project wouldn't move forward. You wouldn't get a tenth of the people you need," said Yukio Suganuma, president of Aisogo Service, a construction company that was hired in 2012 to clean up radioactive fallout from streets in the town of Tamura.

 

...

 

"There are many unknown entities getting involved in decontamination projects," said Igarashi, a former advisor to ex-Prime Minister Naoto Kan. "There needs to be a thorough check on what companies are working on what, and when. I think it's probably completely lawless if the top contractors are not thoroughly checking."

 

...

 

"I don't ask questions; that's not my job," Sasa said in an interview with Reuters. "I just find people and send them to work. I send them and get money in exchange. That's it. I don't get involved in what happens after that."

 

...

 

"The construction industry is 90 percent run by gangs."

It would seem, perhaps, that France (and the US) need their own nuclear accident to unleash an employment boom...

In Russia they did the same thing.

But what was even worse by contracting poor people is that they are stealing everything that isn't nailed down.

In Tjernobyl for example, all the television sets, radio's, furniture... all the belongings from the citizens of the city ended up in second hand stores in Moscow and other cities.

The homeless in Japan are referred to as 'lost people'.

That nobody gives a fuck about them in Japan should come as no surprise as nobody gives a fuck about them anywhere you go (as long as they're kept away).

Also, the whole thing is probably easy to justify by the govheads in Japan as they tend to be elderly and less vulnerable to the radiation.

Sickening, but that's what they're probably thinking.

They don't want to use the Chinese or Koreans for this kind of work; they save those people for real work they want done.  They put the homeless to work on this so that a) organized crime makes more margin money on the labor hours using homeless people, b) you keep your foreign, imported, indentured labor for real work, and c) you eliminate a social problem and save money in so doing while cleaning up the site by using the homeless.

That's how I'd handle it. Round up every TEPCO Board Member and Executive and place them in a conference room onsite under armed guard. Tell them you've made this mess, you are responsible, and you will solve it or die trying. Seize the Chairman and throw him into one of the reactor buildings. Every 48 hours, throw another one in.

Instead, you have the Japanese leadership spinning furiously, the entire country in denial, the Construction Mafia sucking huge amounts of taxpayer funds to turn over dirt, a future water and food crisis, and a large number of children developing leukemia and thyroid cancers. This is only the beginning, and it will get worse.

Much obliged for the continuing education and the rabbit hole that has no bottom. It's timely this was posted just one month after the Fukushima disaster and only has a "few thousand" posts?

It's too bad public television in the U.S. back in 1995 didn't have the guts to confront the DOE/NRC with the showing of this documentary, but then again the U.K. did, and was anybody out there really paying attention 18 years ago till now?  You come to the conclusion like the individuals in this documentary that anything can be purchased for a price with pieces of paper in exchange for silence even when it's over a technology that threatens everything.

Hope everybody on this thread spends the 30 minutes to view this for it's historical relevance.  It's not even New Year's yet, but after watching this I think everyone should make the celebration a marathon this year!

What if prisoners were given extra 'good time' for Fukashema public service. Japan is past the time where hard moral choices can be avoided. Really, that country should be thinking more desperately, such as considering ways to recruit and compensate terminally ill patents, long term criminals, homeless and hopeless people in decline, or other extreme considerations. 3 Fully melted down neuclear reactors will continue to expand their poison the way politicians there are going.
