Man arrested for allegedly letting foreign students work illegally

Kyodo

A man running a Japanese language school in Nogata, Fukuoka Prefecture, was arrested Saturday for allegedly letting several foreign students work longer than the maximum hours allowed by law, police sources said.

The police arrested the man in his 50s and are investigating the involvement of two other officials from the Japan International Education Institute.

It is rare that police pursue criminal charges against a language school official in relation to foreign students’ illegally long work hours, the sources said.

Foreign students with a work permit from the Immigration Bureau can work up to 28 hours a week, but the police believe the suspect found two or more part-time jobs for each of those students so their total work hours exceeded those allowed by law.

The man is suspected of trying to cover up the students’ illegal work by keeping their weekly work hours at each workplace at 28 hours or shorter, the sources said.

    Thank God the “police” in this country have their priorities straight!

    Heaven forbid that some poor students be able to work in excess of 28 hours per week at low-level service jobs that are going unfilled by Japanese people, in a country with only 3% unemployment, and partially (but not completely) offset the extremely high cost of their education, which they are paying to a Japanese-run language school, while paying rent to a Japanese landlord, while buying food and other necessities from Japanese businesses, while paying taxes to the Japanese government, while doing their best to learn the language of the country they’re living in. Heaven forbid! Heinous crime! Aiding and abetting them is equally heinous! May the evil man who arranged this unspeakably terrible crime face life imprisonment or the death penalty!
