Samsung: stop exploiting child laborers

A 14 year old girl, together with six other child workers under 16, were recently discovered working at a factory in China (HEG (Huizhou)) that supplies electronic products like Samsung. These children labored under deplorable conditions, working 11 hours a day, 26 to 28 days a month to make mobile phones, DVDs, stereo equipment and MP3 players for Samsung. This is the same workload as adult workers at the factory, but the children only receive 70% of a formal worker’s pay.
