Tepco is going to raise their salary from 2013 by 460,000 JPY.
Tepco is planning to raise electrical charges by 10.28% from this August, but they are going to pay their employees “bonus”, which is 500,000JPY at average for this winter.
To avoid criticism, Tepco will start annual salary system from 2013 instead of bonus system.
However, they are going to raise the annual salary by 460,000 JPY when they shift to annual salary system. It’s higher than the average of companies with more than 1,000 employees by 280,000 JPY.
Before 311, the average annual salary of Tepco was about 7 million JPY for some reason. After 311, they reduced it by 20 ~ 25 %. Tepco stopped paying bonus for this summer, the average annual salary of 2012 is about 5,250,000 JPY. After they successfully raise the electrical charges, they are starting to raise their salary again.
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.
