Undercover research uncovers disturbing findings at Chinese suppliers

Written by Brett Mathews

The research saw investigators take jobs as frontline workers across eight Chinese supplier factories over an eight-month period, producing findings which once again raise serious questions about whether environmental and social compliance is being adequately enforced in China.
