The abuse cases like this are very common in Japan where the laws applied to intern using companies are very lax and have very few cross controls.

Vietnamese Intern Abused by Japanese Sewing Company
According to Sankei News in Japanese, a 39 year old Vietnamese woman who used to work as a sewing intern in Fukuchiyama city, Kyoto prefecture reported to the police that she had to work for many months and got the wage lower than the minimum wage. 
She worked in the factory since July 2017. The basic salary as promised and signed when starting the job is 150,000 yen, which is equivalent to $1,500. However, the actual payment was only 60,000 yen. Also the managers promised that the overtime payment will be 400 yen for the first year of working and 500 yen for the second year of working.
Reality became much harsher. The female intern got no payment for working overtime though she had to work over time for about 5 hours a day. The only day off is Sunday and the company stored the passport and health insurance cards illegally.
The woman escaped in September 2018 and worked in Tokyo. The woman reported the case to external trade unions, the union in turn requested the company to respond but got no reply.
The abuse cases like this are very common in Japan where the laws applied to intern using companies are very lax and have very few cross controls. However, Japan is in despair for manual labors then Prime Minister Abe recently promised to tighten the rules of using foreign labors.
