On this Labor Day, let's offer some thanks for the workers still laboring at the ongoing disaster that is the Fukushima nuclear plant. The Guardian reports Fukushima radiation levels 18 times higher than previously thought.
Every since the earthquake put the plant into meltdown, I've carried gratitude for the people who are shortening their own lives to save millions of people -- as well as the necks of their corporate employer. Assuming this burden became their job; I'm sure they didn't ask for it.
The video clip dates from mid-August. These sorts of reports surface repeatedly because the radiation danger is not close to contained.
