Japan trainees 'abused'

Many foreign trainees in Japan say they are being exploited.

    About 180,000 foreign trainees work in Japan, and most of them come from China, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam.

    Training these young foreign workers is a plan endorsed by the Japanese government and is supposed to benefit both countries.

    But many say they are being exploited, and last year, a record number of 34 foreign workers had died.

    Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett reports from Japan.
