Japan outlines plan for Fukushima crisis

The Japanese government on Tuesday said it would spend the equivalent of $470 million to try to tackle the toxic water crisis at the country's crippled nuclear power plant.

The government of Prime Minster Shinzo Abe is stepping in, as the plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, struggles to deal with an array of problems.

    $470,000,000.00? That would support a lot of workers, including college graduates, who can't find jobs, as well as children of single mothers living in poverty. How does that country handle that problem?

    It's only an island nation, and I've heard that they have weak unions that cooperate too often with management. We should feel sorry for them.
