By the end of next year, 330 of employees left Tepco, which is 3 times much as before.
About half of them are young employees, who are younger than 29 years old.
The top reasons are
1. Reduced salary
2. Concerns about the future of the company
3. Head hunting.
To pay for the compensation, Tepco has announced they have reduced 25% of the managers’, 20% of normal employees’ salary. They are going to cut off 3,600 employees from Tepco, 7,400 employees from group companies by the end of 2013.
Tepco will not recruit graduates in 2012, and 2013. They have not decided to recruit in 2014 either.
People inside of Tepco are concerned about the internal collapse from the unstoppable human recourse leakage.
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.
