    Default RCS

    Employment Issues: U.S. citizens should not come to Japan to work without having the proper employment visa arranged ahead of time, or in the hopes of earning a large salary. Teaching English, even privately, and serving as hosts/hostesses are both considered "work" in Japan and are illegal without the proper visa.

    Some U.S.-based employment agencies and Japanese employers do not fully discuss or correctly represent the true nature of employment terms and conditions. U.S. consular officers in Japan receive numerous complaints from U.S. citizens who come to Japan to work as English teachers, carpenters, models, actors, entertainers, exotic dancers, and bar hosts/hostesses. The complaints include contract violations, non-payment of salary for months at a time, sexual harassment, intimidation, and threats of arrest, deportation, and physical assault.

    A minimum requirement for effectively seeking the protection of Japanese labor law is a written and signed work contract. Without a signed contract, Japanese authorities do not get involved on behalf of foreign workers. If you’re coming to Japan to work, carefully review your contracts and the history and reputation of your Japanese employer before traveling to Japan. We cannot confirm information about prospective Japanese employers although we may be familiar with organizations or have received complaints in the past. If you are asked to do something you find troubling, you should reconsider being in Japan and think about terminating your employment and returning to the United States. Complaints against U.S.-based employment agencies or recruiters may be directed to the Better Business Bureau or the Office of the Attorney General in that particular state.

    I'm aware of those assertions. And you come here, whilst breathing exclusively from your mouth, to bring down the big bad corporation. What a wonderful little David you are.

    You won't hurt them. You can't hurt them. You are a puny man child clenching your little fists because nobody paid you boatloads of cash to come here and embarrass your home nation by drunkenly scraping the bottom of the barrel at dance clubs. Suck it up, get a new job, and move on.

    Yeah, I'm allowing it 'cause things are slow around here at the moment, and I am kindof amused by justice's odd blabbering. I mean, his other posts were funny enough, but this one's just weird. I have no idea what he's trying to accomplish; that google link was completely nonsensical (I didn't see anything there about employees being treated badly or anything). So I'll let this play out for a bit and see what comes of it, in the hopes that it might amuse me further.

    then again, some of us are stuck at work all day on the saturday of a long weekend and need to read about the hilarious antics of ex-RCS employees to keep us from lashing out at co-workers and/or students

    I'm starting to wonder if justice is actually an RCS public-relations guy who is working to discredit people who badmouth RCS by portraying them as lunatics.

    If so... good show, man; it's working.

    That depends whether you believe the axiom :"Any publicity is good publicity."

    I'm glad you gave me the benefit of the doubt.

    Gosh, given your rather limited grasp of the English language, perhaps it's better that you're no longer employed as an ALT.

    Casual writing style my @$$. If you are calling someone an idiot, you should know better than to use incorrect grammar in the same bloody sentence.

    Lol @ word. Also, why hasn't this person been permabanned? Isn't starting three threads and using RL info to publicly smear someone enough these days?

    At first, I felt like I should allow it 'cause the actions taken by RCS where the visa stuff was concerned were completely uncool, and I didn't really have a problem with such information being made public.

    I can't be sure that the events were being accurately reported, though; justice might be a lying lunatic (it appears increasingly likely each time it posts). So I removed the names in the interests of covering the site's arse.

    I'm continuing to allow this pretty much only for LOLs at this point. If justice pushes the rules again, I will permaban the ever-living snot out of it.
