"I was told I could just work in normal clothes. But I arrived and was put into a full protective suit. I was very confused."
"Then once you've signed all the papers, you find out that actually you're going into a highly radioactive area."
"Workers on the front lines are tricked into going there."
"After a few days, they're thrown away. Then the companies lie and recruit.
"You're brainwashed, bit by bit."
Ummm... Okay.. I understand the issue of sending these guys into a situation most know will kill them eventually. How did we get from the "Fukushima 50" to the 'but they didn't TELL me Fukushima was dangerous!'?????
Do these workers honestly expect anyone on this planet to believe they actually got suckered into working at the best known industrial accident site in the history of man, and were unaware of the dangers?? They were..surprised? Exploited? Snookered?
Umm.. Okay, if my job assignment says Fukushima? I'm thinking it's a danger pay kinda job ..and I live half a planet away.
I just have no sympathy whatsoever for that level of total, pure and complete ignorance. That level is willful and self indulging. It's not like this is some obscure accident. People from Antarctic science stations to Eskimos in igloos know what Fukushima is and most can probably find it on a map better than the top major nations of the world.
the only way to even get a single worker to set foot in there is to lie to them. no person that was informed would do a job knowing it WILL give them cancer.
