Atomic mafia ‘cleans up’ Fukushima, neglects basic workers’ rights
November 20, 2013 Russia Today
A former Fukushima worker said that they were given no insurance for health risks, no radiation meters even. At first they were promised a lot of money, even offered a long-term contract but they were kicked out when they received a large radiation doze. They could have exposed themselves to large doses without even knowing it.
