JAPAN: Kurabo Investigated For Political Discrimination
The Osaka Labour Bureau has launched an investigation into alleged discrimination of workers at Kurabo Industries Ltd.
The investigations concern complaints that workers at the cotton spinner were discriminated against for their political beliefs.
The bureau has been examining Kurabo's headquarters in Osaka and other sites for evidence that it violated the Labor Standards Law.
Two employees are said to have accused the company of discriminating against them in terms of salary and position because they belonged to the Japanese Communist Party.
