U.S. Workers Recruited for Fukushima

via Reuters:

“A U.S. recruiter is hiring nuclear power workers in the United States to help Japan gain control of the stricken Fukushima Daiichi plant, which has been spewing radiation.

The qualifications: Skills gained in the nuclear industry, a passport, a family willing to let you go, willingness to work in a radioactive zone.

…..Bartlett Nuclear had been approached by sub-contractors linked to the General Electric-Hitachi nuclear joint venture.”

“These are not ‘jumpers’ rushing into a room. TEPCO is bringing in robots to help limit human exposure to high levels of radiation,” he said.

“Jumpers” is the industry term for people who enter highly radioactive environments to quickly perform a task. The practice was common in the United States in the 1970s and early 80s.”
