Samsung Investigating Alleged Child Labor Abuse at Chinese Factory

Avram Piltch, writing for Laptop Magazine:

It looks like Apple and Samsung have another thing in common, aside from their love of rectangular tablet designs: alleged labor abuses at the Chinese factories which make their products. In a scathing undercover report issued last night, activist group China Labor Watch detailed a litany of alleged abuses, including employing workers as young as 14, at Samsung supplier HEG’s factory complex in mainland China.

I’m sure this will get just as much media attention as Apple’s supply chain labor practices have.
