New York Times reports sweatshop labor conditions for foreign workers


The New York Times reported that foreign workers, mostly Filipino and Chinese workers were lured to training jobs in Japan but the workers were subjected to unpaid overtime, sweatshop conditions, physical and verbal attacks and horrible working conditions.

Filipino and many other foreign workers are faced with so much peril and risks seeking employment abroad for a better life for their families.  We should work on long-term solutions so these workers in the near future can have a choice – either to work in the Philippines or work abroad. Right now, there is no other choice but to leave.

  1. I wish to express appreciation to you for rescuing me from this particular crisis. Right after researching through the world-wide-web and obtaining methods that were not pleasant, I figured my entire life was done. Being alive minus the solutions to the issues you’ve resolved by way of your short article is a serious case, and the kind that would have in a wrong way affected my career if I hadn’t discovered your blog. Your good competence and kindness in controlling a lot of things was valuable. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come across such a thing like this. I’m able to at this time relish my future. Thanks a lot very much for this reliable and effective help. I will not think twice to suggest your web sites to anybody who desires guide about this subject matter.
