    Default Japanese Labor units?

    Hi,

    Trying to find out is this organization (满洲劳工协会-大东公司) Great East Company or Manchurian Labor Association was tasked to locate forced labor for work for the Japanese? I attached a scan of an ID issued to a Chinese worker (?) from the organization I am asking about.

    Thanks,
    Neil.

    It looks like a sort of labor management and organization group, kinda like the corporatist labor organizations created in contemporary Germany (Deutsche Arbeitsfront) and Japan (大日本産業報国会=Greater Japan Industrial National Service Association(?)). This was done under the spirit of managed economy based on the Soviet model prevalent during that time (the 5 year plans for Manchukuo were consciously made to mimic the apparent success of Soviet 5 year plans). Perhaps it was involved in forced labor, but that does not seem to be the explicit purpose of this organization.
