Posted in: Top court finds charging subscription fee for NHK broadcasts constitutional See in context

I've got my subscription almost a decade ago, I didn’t knew Japanese, just knew some random guy barged through my door

HAH! Happened the exact same to me a year and half ago. The bad part is that now that i don't want to use my bank account i can't open another account since there's no free time monday through friday 10AM-3PM [bank schedule].

Posted in: Vietnamese detainee killed himself in immigration center, community leader says See in context

Many detainees are held for months and even years without knowledge of when they will be released, and many develop depression, anxiety and insomnia.

The ones i heard about, the ones who managed to get a job (illegally) worked for about 10.000-20.000yen a month plus some food and a room.

I don't want to be the hater, but, gosh, is life there so miserable that is worth doing these kind of things?

Or perhaps they've been tricked, the same trick some people do in Brazil, they tell you that you'll have a job and earn "X" a month. That you'll be able to live a nice and comfortable life and send some spare cash back to your family-- in your country.

But when that person arrives in Japan, they have no money to go back, know nothing about the local language, plus a giant debt with the agency (who paid your flight ticket).

And there you go. You have to work basically for free, for some months or years. And when your debt is paid, they fire you, and they go back to Brazil to get another one.

Gotta love third-party agencies. They usually do this with hundreds of people at the same time. Everyday. Yet, totally legal. I guess there aren't that many vietnamese hakengaisha (派遣会社) around.
