Japan was recently hit with one of the worst natural disasters in recorded history, and the ordeal is far from over.

In light of the current situation, Volkswagen and BMW who have a large operation in Japan, are calling back their foreign employees. 50 or so workers from BMW and a similar number from VW have already returned home, with more expected in the near future.

This catastrophe has already claimed more than 5000 lives and caused nearly a $1 trillion worth of damage.
