issue being discussed : a japanese business man was arrested today for sending a 15 year old to clear wastes of a wrecked nuclear plant. the boy said he was introduced to his former boss through a government-run employment agency and was ordered to lie about his age.
observations : the writer explained very clearly on where the people were from specifically and gave back ground information about japan's prohibition against people under 18 working at radioactive areas.
writer : the writer approached this issue with great research about japan. (writer did not give opinions.)
if it were to happen in singapore : if this case happens to occur in singapore, i find that the singapore government would also sentence the businessman as it is inhuman to send a young child to work at such a dangerous place to work. moreover, it involves having skin contact with radioactive objects. thus, i feel that singaporeans would not be so unreasonable to force someone to lie about their age to work.
