Why are letters like Brian Clacey’s on June 22, “Give guest workers a set contract,” even published? Xenophobe Clacey does not live in Japan and his ideas are appallingly ignorant and selfish. Why not just call “fixed contracts” indentured servitude coupled with expulsion — should the foreign worker become injured or ill, demand that the law uphold their legal rights, or threaten to sully the pure Yamato bloodline? These are not reasonable opinions, but unwanted, intrusive rants.
