Samsung finds problems at contract manufacturer HEG
posted by Maxwell R. / Sep 05, 2012, 3:48 AM
A previous investigation conducted by the city’s own authorities did not uncover any children under the age of 16, China’s minimum legal working age. Samsung did find some problems at the plant and fortunately, none of those problems indicated the use of child labor.
What Samsung did find however, are “several instances of inadequate management and potentially unsafe practices” at the HEG plant. Samsung also said that it was conducting check of all its facilities in China and will be sending out a team of 100 Samsung employees to canvass all 105 Chinese suppliers the company works with by the end of this month.

The fact that they have declared finding *some* issues makes it more reassuring that they actually worked to find out whether the manufacturer was doing what it was supposed to. Glad to hear this.

Listen if your products are made abroad, most likely they are produce by child labor. It would be naive and ignorant to believe Apple is the only company employing minors. Remember a couple years back, Katy Lee, Nike, and Walmart. Fact is, Americans want cheaper products, guess what, You and I are responsible for the misery of many overseas. If a company wants larger profit margins, products can't be fabricated in the US. It parallels the drug trade, guess which country supports, consumes, and buys the most illicit drugs, Bingo. Don't come here preaching and getting on your high horse, because you're ignorant about the facts, or want to feel better about yourself. Every company does it.
