Samsung supplier 'hired children' [Western Morning News (England)]

(Western Morning News (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Samsung has suspended business ties with a Chinese supplier that allegedly hired children. The South Korean company, which is the world's biggest smartphone maker, said in its blog that it had found possible evidence of child labour and illegal hiring at Dongguan Shinyang Electronics Co. Samsung said last week it would urgently look into the Chinese supplier following a New York-based watchdog's report that it hired at least five children under the age of 16. China Labour Watch said the child workers were paid for 10 hours a day but worked 11 hours.
