In addition, I show you one evidence.Medium and small companies recover by accepting migrant workers. According to JIL/ http://www.jil.go.jp/foreign/jihou/2004_12/taiwan_01.htm In Taiwan, restriction to accept migrant workers is going to be lightened in the manufacture field, to prompt new investment. Therefore medium and small sized manufacture will get much benefit by governmental new measure which come whole economy in sight to prompt developing medium and small companies.Thus, we need them. And they can save us. But as I said before, we have to think about bad things at the same time.

Thier abilities and usefulness.

Then, migrant workers are useful as same as Japanese workers.Prof Kuwahara said when we compare the migrant workers with Japanese workers in terms of skill, it is clear from the table that as much as 73.1% of companies answered “they are working completely same kind” and those migrant workers have no difference from Japanese workers. So they are usuful. They can contribute to our economy. Of cause, becase they can get money, this is a good for both.


Then, I show you need and advantage of migrants.In Japan the birth rate is declining rapidly and man power is needed.One estimate shows even if the Birth Rate recovers and become stable from this year’s 1.39 to 1.6 by 2010, in 2025 a ratio between the old generation which is over 65 years old and the working generation which is 15-64 years old will become 1 of 3, furthermore, in 2050 it will become almost 1of 2. In addition, it is epochal because it guessed that Japanese population (which begins to decrease from 2007) become almost half in 2050.So, without migrants we cannot keep our economy.


And it is more serious than I have thought, becasue migrants diseases are more seriouse than the Japanese people have.According to, Anti-Tuberculosis AssociationRecently, the number of tuberculosis of foreigners in Japan has a tendens to increase. When we compare the foreigners come to Japan after 1987 with Japanese, about foreigners the risk of tuberculosis is very high.(omit) In addition, the risk that the foreigners who have cured before have tuberculosis with tolerances to drug is as twice to five times as Japanese.Thus, not only migrants themselves and workplaces but also whole society should be concern, when we think about this problems.

About it.

This empirical evidence shows that when the government of Thailand investigated about 600,000 migrant workers, 5.399 migrant workers were tuberculosis. Of couse, the same situation would accur in Japan.

One story tells us.

I have already thought about disadvantages among workplace. So I will consider about society.First, the flow of migrants cause some diseases problems. I researched tuberculosis.Then I found one article. It says the infectious diseases spread by the migrant workers.This is a story of Thailand.Labor policy research and training organization “05/ overseas labor situation/http://www.jil.go.jp/foreign/jihou/2005_1/thailand_01.htmQ) The number of registration of migrant workers in 2004 is 1,284,920 people, and 690,000 people are occupied by the workers from three countries; Myanmar and Cambodia and Laos. And 54% of these people have taken some medical examinations, as a result 5399 people are tuberculosis, 3092 people are syphilis, 375 people are helminthes, 273 people are malaria, 202 people are elephantiasis, and eight people are leprosy.

Migrants again

I saw a presentation about migrants. Then I rethink about this problems.
