Comeuppance for Osaka mayor

The March 26 Kyodo article “Osaka city survey on labor plans ruled illegal” was good to read. I think it is about time that someone stood up to the bullying nature of Osaka Mayor Toru Hashimoto and the dictatorial way he has treated city employees.

Hashimoto should be made to understand that he cannot violate the rights of human beings for the benefit of his own political career. I hope this sets a precedent in checking the heavy-handed manner in which he governs.
