On September 23, 2014, workers and supporters will protest the Bank of Tokyo to demand it stop benefiting from the sweatshop practices at Rainbow Limo. Two groups of workers at Rainbow Limo came forward to fight back against sweatshop conditions and filed lawsuits against Rainbow Limo and owner, SeongBae Dan for failing to pay overtime, stealing a percentage of the workers’ tips and demanding $10,000 from drivers in order to work.
The Bank of Tokyo, Japan’s largest bank, is one of Rainbow Limo’s main contracts. The workers sought support from the Bank of Tokyo but the bank ignored the drivers. Workers and supporters will call for Bank of Tokyo to take responsibility and pay the workers immediately.
