I just read this article and really appreciate that someone is taking a stance and moving against this appalling situation that is allowed in Japan and with these companies. There is absolutely no excuse for allowing this. And Japan is a modern nation and fully aware that this type of thing is very wrong and can no longer hide behind any excuse such as culture etc. There are international norms and understood common sense as to the rights of people and what is acceptable. And this clearly is NOT right! The victims here are innocent and very young children. A strong message needs to be sent to these companies and maybe some strong examples be set by not only boycotting them but possible criminal actions taken where possible. I encourage anyone who reads this article or the comments here to also write support of this authors position and actions.
