Samsung discovers evidence of child labor


Samsung (SSNLF, SSNGY) has temporarily suspended business with its Shinyang supplier factory after finding evidence suggesting that the child labor allegations which surfaced last week could very well be true.

The accusation was made by the New York-based China Labor Watch which reported several cases of underage workers at the facility.

“If the investigations conclude that the supplier indeed hired children illegally, Samsung will permanently halt business with the supplier,” announced the South Korean company.

    Priceless. Did they discover this before or after a third-party U.S. based watch group pointed it out to the world?
