Assistant Language Teachers (ALT) in Japan - Below The Poverty Line

From the Fukuoka General Union:

This is an actual example on how impossible it is to live on the salary of a dispatched ALT working at a Kitakyushu City Board of Education public school. Though they are full time teachers, they only have 1000 yen a day to spend on food, and nothing else. They just can't survive on this low wage.
