HuiZhou Officials denied that HEG electronics use child labor and
has excessive working hours. We don’t believe their statement as it is contrary to our investigation findings.
However, from the picture they released, you can see that workers are standing while they work, as we had talk about in our report. Often time, they are required to stand for more than 11 hours in the small working area. Walking around is restricted. Imagine how it is like to stand in a small working table for 10 hours a day with your movement strictly under restriction. Not to mention that most of these workers are underaged, some of them are child laborers. http://www.china.org.cn/china/2012-08/10/content_26189051.htm
