Posted in: Immigration agency admits to mistreatment of Sri Lankan before her death See in context

As I see it, gaijin's rights in Japan, when demanded, is non-existent.

it's doesn't even come close to a non-tax paying Japanese.

When you are perceived to have broken the rules, there is no room to qualify or defend your actions.

you lose all your rights... if there ever were on the outset,

in my eyes, it's like "it's not our fault, it's your fault entirely. if you didn't come here, this wouldn't have happened"...

sucks to be a gaijin...

Posted in: Prosecutors decide not to indict man for killing homeless woman in Ueno Park See in context

Okay, somebody killed someone. That someone is no longer with us. The suspect was identified - the killer. But there is no indictment, no accountability for the crime. Where is the balance? Where is justice? This does not make sense at all. What does it imply? Killing with impunity is acceptable in the eyes of authorities? It is both frightening and mortifying to realize that justice is relative to the ones who should be enforcing the law.

I pushed you, groped you,

Had all my hands on you, abused you.

But it’s okay now.

I reflected on my actions.

I’m sorry.

I’ll pay for the medical bills and rehabilitation.

Give you gifts, whatever you need.

I’ll be in your life as long as it takes to atone myself.

we okay?


yeah, that makes perfect sense .(sarcastic)

Was the punishment is equal to the offense? I don’t know. Did she deserve it? I can’t say. Was that justice? They say Justice is blind.

Posted in: Japan tells embassies risk of contaminated Fukushima water 'small' See in context

I doubt the data. There’s a 67% chance that it the waters can still make it to human consumption, and 83% adversely impacting the environment. See? And I just made up all that claim just right now. Who’s to say the claims above have been manipulated? Or worse, tolerance/standard levels loosened enough to have the green light to have these contaminated waters released. They were collected up for a reason.

I don’t know. If you told me that there was a teaspoon of poo in a hotel reservoir. I won’t even touch it. Similarly, contaminated water is still contaminated water.

Posted in: Dementia patients reported missing in 2018 hit record 17,000 See in context

It’s in the food, the paint, the insulation. I tell you, one of these days, they’d find the cause of dementia and it will be something we’ve been buying and using all our lives.

unless the root cause of the sickness is found, this problem will surely grow as the years go by.

Posted in: Japan to toughen controls on brokers for foreign workers See in context

I’m not sure how the government will enforce this. Brokers will always have ways to charge money back from their dispatched workers.

One way is through “utilities and rent”. The brokers have a satellite office in Japan that “oversee” all trainee activities. They charge a fixed amount for each trainee (about $300 a month) for electricity, water. The rent is not free and is divided between the housemates living together (3-5 per house)

they (the brokers) also get a cut from the pay of the workers, as much as 15-20% of the actual salary from the trainees as management fees.

Example, the company in Japan agrees to pay each trainee 1800 (or even more) dollars a month, the broker gets 300 dollars (or even more) from each trainee (which the trainee does not know) and the trainee gets 1500 dollars monthly.

No overtime, so no overtime pay (because of their visa status), (but companies do break them from time to time to cover “lost” days (due to weather or sickness). And the trainees think they’re earning all what they worked for.

Imagine that, at least 300 dollars from each trainee (on top of the 300 dollars for utility separately charged)

they send from 300-1000 a year.

Another thing, the trainees pay for their own health insurance. So brokers and the companies are free from health insurance responsibilities.

do the math, it’s big business.
