A reward of volunteer work






Tokyo organizing committee of Olympic Games has announced that they are planning to pay 1000JPY (8-9USD) to a volunteer a day as a reward during the games. But some people claim that the committee is considering to take advantage of volunteers as cheap labors. This topic now became hot and controversial in Japan. Basically, there are so many sponsor companies behind the committee and they support the committee with a huge amount of money. People believe that the committee has capital resources. I feel Olimpic Games is a commercial event like World Cup football games. I guess the committee can pay at least over 1000JPY to volunteers. Tokyo Olimpic games is being held in the middle of Japanese summer. Japanese summer is generally humid and sizzling hot. Volunteers are working in tough conditions. Even in this aspect, I suppose the committee should pay much more to volunteer workers.
