Around 20% of the 133 nurses employed in a major hospital in Wajima, a city that suffered heavy damage in the Jan 1 Noto Peninsula earthquake, have decided to quit or are considering it, the hospital has said.

Workload are increasing, other infrastructure is being destroyed which include spouse working place or even school.

some of its nurses have no choice but to leave after their homes were damaged or they were forced to move away due to their children's schooling or spouses' work situations.

Government solution? Increasing their salary to attract people from outside prefecture? No, just allow them to work double job.

 considering a system to allow medical staff to work at other health care facilities while staying as employees at hospitals in disaster-hit areas.

Those trainees have little odd to have drug issues, the problem with debt when someone get it from loan shark in their home country just to pay their cost be able to go to Japan, interest can be insanely high. So what's the problem, now those trainee are in Japan while their loan shark is outside Japan right?

Well those loan shark can annoyed coerce trainees' family on daily basis.

My wife came over from the Philippines originally as a trainee. Filipinos are some of the best workers here in Japan and are some of the most honest people I’ve ever met. This case is unfortunate but really unusual.

I also find some people who originally come to Japan as hostess in club, finally they find normal live.

However those trainee, already have debt when arrived in Japan.

 eased visa regulations to expand the scope of foreign students allowed to stay on and find jobs in Japan, in response to calls from business and academic circles.

Most of big companies in Japan only do recruitment for students who are in school, so these foreign students who try to find job in Japan after graduation, will end up with smaller companies with low wages.
