Yakuza News: Yakuza Laid off

 

This is a great article about a Yakuza being kicked out of the Sumiyoshi-Kai for not being able to pay his dues.  Apparently the Yakuza, was unable to pay his dues because his profits are down.  Its ironic, with out his membership in the clan his options are limited.   The ex-Yakuza said something to the effect who is going to hire an old tattooed guy who is missing a digit?  Again, life after the Yakuza is very limited in Japan.  This article goes on to discuss the effects the downturn in the economy has had on the gangsters, when profits are down membership drops.  There is also discussion of the effects of the crackdown.
