Fight by workers and families against Samsung in Korea intensifies

The Samsung company is one of the most known brands in the world selling countless products in the electronics, entertainment and domestic appliances sectors. It is also a brutal anti worker company that in South Korea prides itself in having being able to stop workers forming independent unions in its workplaces. This has resulted in toxic workplaces were hundreds of workers have gotten sick due to poor safety conditions. Many have also died. There has been an ongoing campaign by workers and families to improve workplace safety and receive adequate compensation. This month has seen an increase in the pressure against the company via a permanent sit in.
