TEPCO and the contractors working at the plant have not been paying some workers the proper danger pay. These workers are doing their work in shelter buildings that are the same distance from the reactors as other areas designated as radiation zones. Due to the way labor laws are written it is not clear who or how these additional payments should be administered. Currently TEPCO is blaming the contractors and the contractors blaming TEPCO for who should determine the danger level. Meanwhile workers again lose out while the work situation at the plant goes on without proper oversight.
This is just another work related problem at the plant, we have been reporting for months on everything from forcing workers to pay for lunch to problems with contracts and serious preventable safety issues
