New child-labor claims hit Samsung


Samsung (SSNLF, SSNGY) is facing new child labor accusations at its Shinyang supplier factory in China.

The allegations were made by the New York-based China Labor Watch after finding several cases of underage workers at the facility. The factory seems to employ children and underage students during busy seasons, generally hiring them for three to six months.

    I am stunned by this news. Samsung is otherwise such an ethical company.

    You must be joking. If Samsung is ethical it would not illegally copy Apple.
    Apple is Californian, ten times more ethical than the billionaire owner of Samsung. Please do read the news about him.
