Panasonic offers Japan hires China pollution danger pay, FT says

Panasonic has become the first international company to declare it will compensate employees it sends to China for the dangerous levels of pollution in the country, the Financial Times reported Wednesday. The company cited the high levels of very fine PM2.5 air pollution in some urban Chinese areas but did not say the number of Japanese employees in China covered by the scheme or the amount they will receive, the report said. Chinese employees already living in the country will not get the extra payment, it said.
