Fukushima workers speak out

The nuclear plant at Japan’s Fukushima may be leaking radiation, but people are still going there daily to look for employment where about 2,200 of the 2,500 working there are subcontractors.

In the last three months, at least eight workers have been exposed to high levels of radiation and removed from duty but this has not deterred others.

It’s a vocation with little job security, few benefits and no insurance for injuries or radiation poisoning but many are still lining up.
