Japan May Name Firms Illegally Hiring Foreign Trainees

   Tokyo, Nov. 12 (Jiji Press)--Japan will consider disclosing the names of companies that illegally employ foreign technical trainees who fled their initial workplaces, the Immigration Services Agency said Tuesday.
   The measure is included in a policy package to prevent foreign trainees from fleeing that was released by the agency.
   In January-June, 4,499 foreign trainees fled the companies that accepted them, and went missing, up by 256 year on year, according to the agency.
   Foreign trainees often receive bad treatment from the companies where they are trained, such as failures to pay for their work.
   In addition, many trainees face pressure to pay off massive debt owed to the organizations in their home countries that sent them to Japan.
