Apparently, it’s also illegal in Japan to offer an unfair internship. The difference is that, there, you will get in trouble for doing it.
Six Vietnamese women are suing a Japanese sub-contractor of Toyota that wasn’t paying them the minimum wage during their so-called internship. It’s interesting to note that they were part of a program of industrial training. Let’s hope that thee results will be less illegal practice, not less international cooperation.
If our Japanese readers are interested to tell us about the labor law in their country, we will gladly share the information.
