The following research project goals to analyze the interrelation dynamic between class, race/ethnicity and gender aspects in Brazilians' immigrant labor in Japan. Currently, more than 170 thousand Brazilians lives in Japan, mostly inserted in industrial sector and in jobs that are considered precarious, with low social protection, high level of informality and low mobility inside the job market. Reports of sexual and racial discrimination are also verified on dekassegui's daily routine. The woman condition is greatly aggravated by low payments, sometimes it is 30% less than the men worker's payment. The sexual division of labor makes the dekasseguis women to work more, earning less and having a higher exposure to sexual and racial oppressions. In this research proposal is intended to do a field research with dekasseguis inserted in the transformation industry sector, in order to understand how the interrelation dynamic between class, race/ethnicity and gender appears in the Japanese case. We have as hypothesis that the interrelation dynamic between those categories can increase the exploration-domination of those subjects.
