Governor promised to give jobs to the sufferers from the disaster area

On March 20 at a gathering held in Otsu, Governor Kada unveiled her policy to give jobs preferentially to the sufferers who evacuated the disaster-hit area in Eastern Japan, referring to the prefecture's projects funded by Emergency Employment Act (EEA).

"The refugees have already arrived in Toyosato. When I talked with the mayor on the phone, he showed his concern regarding employment issues because those who will settle down need jobs. I promised that the prefecture would consider giving jobs preferentially to the sufferers," says Governor Kada.

Emergency Employment Measures Office, a division of the prefectural government, is exploring the possibility of hiring them as supplementary staff at the prefectural office. Since the EEA is designed to hire those who are officially unemployed, the prefecture is requesting that the central government deregulate its rule, which makes it possible to hire the refugees who are not officially unemployed.
