Korean giant Samsung, the world’s largest mobile phone maker, has announced that business with one of its Chinese suppliers has been temporarily suspended following indications that the supplier employs children under the age of 16 in at least some of their factories.
This is a reaction to criticism against the company, which some people blame for not monitoring the labor practices of some of its suppliers.
The decision comes a week after the organization China Labor Watch (CLW), based in the US, assured that they had detected “at least five children working” without a contract in a factory of the denounced supplier, specifically in a factory in Shinyang Electronics in Dongguan, in southeastern China, and warned the Samsung company itself of this.
