Okay then I will tell you about my own troubles as this experience might be helpful to all of you in the future.
Let's start the story then
Hardship in Japan
as you all might know I don't have any experience in working moreover doing heavy labor. So when starting doing farming job, my back can't hold on and I was feeling pain in my lower back. I was holding it on in the start as I want to make good impression to my boss but it was in vain. I collapsed and make troubles for everyone and from there, things start to go downhill.
after much scolding and nagging from the boss, I made a resolve to just work the hardest I can no matter what. I work if asked, I never late, I rest when it's holiday. But it seems like the first time I collapsed because of back pain give my boss a bad impression so no matter how hard I struggle, it was not enough. And they told me that they fire me. and will send me home in the 29th of December. That thing happened in the night of 24th December. Such a holy night to remember.
At first I feel despaired. But after I ask my friend and parent for their opinion, I determined to try clawing my way so I can still stay in Japan to keep on working. I ask for help from the one who overseer the trainee from my country. You can say he is the one responsible for all the trainee in Japan from my country. And he said to just wait for his coming in the 28th. I can see hope from the way he say it. Until that fateful day come.
December the 28th. That guy is coming to the place together with the people that responsible for receiving the trainee (called Kumiai or in English, Worker Union). Unexpectedly, that guy from my country betray his word to me to help me and instead help the union and my boss persuade me to obediently leave the country. And send me straight to the airport.
I don't know the rules and what not but the plane fare for going back home is coming from my own pocket! the money that I worked so hard just go pouring out just like that.
And what worse is that guy from my country that should be my guardian here... He just come an extort more money from me. He said that it was to pay his train fare coming here. He said that he shouldn't have to pay that train fare if I don't have any troubles. And he said that for such a small matter he had to pay that much so he extorted money from me. it was just as much as the plane fare. that backstabbing coldblooded bastard... instead of giving solution he even do such terrible thing to me. I lost all my trust, and feel disappointed. The time I spend in the plane is hell.
More thing happened when I got back home but mostly are minors. You can imagine yourself how sad my parent was when I got back home.
Then another shit incoming. The company who sends me to Japan, the boss, comes to my house accompanied by 2 punks. and give ultimatum to my parent that we need to pay the fine because I broke the contract. That boss, he was used to be very polite and down to earth when I was training in his place. but now he turned 180 degrees into a vicious person trying to squeeze more money from me.
Me and my parent is at our wit's end. But thank god my father had a great lawyer acquaintance that can help us with that fine trouble.
My parents and I talk a lot about my troubles to this lawyer. Talking to him was another big eye opener. I understand at that time that law is not something to protect the weak. Law is something created to protect the people that understands it. If you don't understand law, it will be used against you. if you keep on being passive then people will have their way with you. That is an expensive lesson I receive there.
And after I talked with the lawyer, I realize that I can keep on staying in Japan at that time if I were to be more stubborn. I being there is protected by the law and those people from union or my boss can't fire me then send me back to my country just as they pleases. But I realizes that too late. I can only make it a big moral lesson to face the future.
Well now the fine from that bastard boss is still under process but I got the advantage for it so I might be able to avoid getting the fine. Oh just in case the fine is about 15.000$. Its the same amount as if I break the contract myself and flee from my working place. But I break that contract is not because of my will and he dares to extort my family and squeeze us until we dry like that... Such a scary place the world is.
Well.. that's just a bit story of my experience. Hope it can also help you readers if you meet trouble that is related to the law. Just be careful when signing something. Those crooks will always try to find a way to suck you dry.
In short, if you are weak then you will be used by others. So be brave and protect yourself.
