Samsung wrote in their 2014 sustainability report:

“Already we hold our manufacturing facilities to the highest labor and environmental regulations worldwide. This year, we also strengthened supplier compliance by reinforcing our Code of Conduct and actively monitoring and managing our dynamic supply chain. Samsung has one top priority: To ensure the health and safety of our employees and the communities where we operate.”

Wow, reuters, pretend to be Apple who actually does maintain the highest standards, and then you get slapped down for not even being close! Typical for this corrupt corporation.

@leicaman – Apple doesn’t maintain the highest standards of anything, least of all when it comes to labour. Apple directors were touring Foxconn facilities 2 years before allegations of worker abuse came out in the media. Suddenly they claimed the SAME thing that Samsung is claiming in the quote you posted. Don’t pretend that Apple are the good guys. There were multiple Foxconn employee suicides…ALL of which were under Apple’s production wing, and NONE of which were present in any other department within the company. Steve Jobs, being the arrogant douchebag he was, didn’t so much as offer a single condolence to any of the family members for the nonsense going on behind those doors. You want to talk about corruption? There’s nobody more corrupt than Apple.
