Submission + - Pensioners to Help Clean Up Nuclear Plant (

mdsolar writes: "As noted earlier on slashdot, retirees have volunteered to help clean up the nuclear disaster site in Fukushima.

Now, it is being reported that the volunteers will be put to work.

Yasuteru Yamada, a 72-year-old former anti-nuclear activist, will lead a band of pensioners to the Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant early next month to help clean up the site of Japan’s worst atomic disaster since World War II. Yamada, a retired Sumitomo Metal Industries Ltd. (5405) plant engineer, is waiting for Tokyo Electric Power Co. to allow his volunteer “Skilled Veterans Corps” to carry out preliminary inspections at the plant after the government welcomed the move.
