Officials taken to task over jackets harassing welfare recipients
January 18, 2017 (Mainichi Japan)
The Odawara City office has taken seven officials to task after dozens of public workers and contractors bought jackets bearing an English phrase calling illegitimate welfare recipients "dregs," it said Tuesday.
According to the city in Kanagawa Prefecture, a total of 64 personnel, including welfare case workers, purchased the jackets with their own money and some city officials were wearing the jackets when they visited households of welfare recipients during work hours.
Printed on the back of the jackets were English phrases such as "Finding injustice of them, we chase them and punish injustice to accomplish the proper execution" and "If they try to deceive us for gaining a profit by injustice, 'We dare to say, They are dregs!'"
SHAT = "seikatsu" (livelihood), "hogo" (protection), "aku bokumetsu" (eradication of evil), "team"
