Samsung Finds Evidence of Child Labor In Supply Chain

By Kaylene Hong at TNW:  

Samsung was “urgently” looking into fresh allegations of child labor at a supplier’s China factory last week, after New York-based watchdog China Labor Watch (CLW) accused the Korean company of employing underaged workers at Shinyang Electronics.

Now Samsung has just announced that it has “temporarily suspended business with the factory in question” after it indeed found evidence of child labor at the factory. This comes despite Samsung earlier saying that it didn’t find any cases of child labor even after conducting audits on three occasions since 2013, with the latest one ending June 25 this year.
