Japan reverses decision to exclude adult entertainment industry from virus relief package

Share

Those working legally in Japan’s sex industry will be able to access assistance in the government’s economic relief package, Health and Labor Minister Kazunobu Kato said in a news conference Tuesday.

That’s a reversal of the government’s original plan, which excluded restaurants and bars in the adult entertainment industry.

The government will provide a subsidy of 8,330 yen ($76) per day to businesses that allow employees to take leave to care for children out of school.

The government’s original plan was criticized as occupational discrimination by government opposition members.
