This isn’t the freshest news, but it’s still very troubling.
Asahi Shimbun newspaper has undercovered that the subcontracted workers were forced to wear these lead cases ON TOP of their radiation sensors to cheat and lower the radiation level readings.
The lead case covers up the sensor which faces outwards from the front pocket of the worker’s suit. You don’t need to read Japanese to figure out the diagram.
Is this what happens in a civilized country?
I think not.
But the sad fact is that things like this are going on in Japan WITHOUT any proper news coverage.
People are dying from this.
Our prayers go out to the workers and their families and hope that they don’t have any adverse effects from radiation.
For the people who lied and cheated, …well, karma is a bitch.
