Samsung to reevaluate its labor practices in China
SEOUL, South Korea — Samsung has acknowledged poor working conditions at its factories in China after a labor group said investigators found widespread abuses.
An official at the South Korean company said Wednesday it will start reevaluating its labor practices in China. The official said new product launches and production lines have led to long hours of work.
The company was responding to China Labor Watch’s investigation of six Samsung-owned plants and two suppliers in China.
The watchdog said it found forced and excessive overtime, exhausting working conditions that require most employees to work standing, and other labor abuses at the eight plants.
