Mr. Suzuki also comments about the current wage of Fukushima workers. The interview was taken in the beginning of 2012.

鈴木 ただね、東電はいまだに「危険手当」を出していないから。東電がそれを出しちゃうと、フクイチが危険だと認めたことになるわけだから、協力企業が作業員に出していたわけ。でも今や日当は2,000円~3,000円ぐらいにまで下がってきているし、協力会社も経営が苦しくなって今後原発から撤退する企業が増えていくでしょう。

When you were in Fukushima, workers were paid very well and they got expensive cars, didn’t they ?

Mr. Suzuki
but Tepco still doesn’t pay risk perquisite. If they pay that, it means Tepco admits Fukushima is in danger, so subcontract companies pay their workers risk perquisite.
However, now the day wage is only 2000~3000 yen. Those subcontract companies will withdraw from Fukushima not being able to make profit.





About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
