Labor concerns at factory (~14,000 workers) manufacturing components for laptops, digital cameras, and mobile devices: age discrimination upon hiring (16 - 30 years old); use of student labor (as low as 16); 12 hour daily shifts; during peak season (April to December), workers get at most two days a month and may not have a single day off for an entire month; verbally abusive management; the simple face masks that the factory provides do not effectively prevent workers from inhaling metal dust; a thick layer of metal particles was evident under workers’ nostrils; safety training to new workers nor do they inform workers of the inherent risks of their occupations; workers need to work overtime to make ends meet; average monthly salary  is approximately 2,900 RMB (≈$460).  Suzhou Industrial Park, Jiangsu, ChinaChina Labor WatchAbusive Management, Child Labor, Discrimination, Excessive Work Hours, Non-Living Wage, Occupational Hazard
