Samsung's Smartphone Sweatshops in Vietnam

Audio not available
The world of Big Tech seems clean and ultra modern, but your smartphone was likely built under shockingly dirty labor conditions. An in-depth investigation of Vietnamese Samsung production facilities peels back the shrink-wrap of the electronics industry to reveal who makes our fancy gadgets and what our obsession with consumer electronics means for workplace health. We speak with Joe DiGangi of IPEN, which published the report with the NGO CGFED. The revelations, which fit into a pattern of labor exploitation at Samsung, have prompted international scrutiny as well as reported crackdowns on workers.

A version of this interview also aired on Dissent's Belabored podcast.
