Stunning report from South Korea: “A worker’s body is stolen.”

Read how Samsung treats its workers, even dead ones, and you might reconsider the giant company for your next phone. From Hankyoreh, one of South Korea’s only independent newspapers.

Members of the Samsung service workers chapter of the Korean Metal Workers’ Union and other labor activists sleep outside Samsung Electronics headquarters in Seoul’s Seocho district as part of an outdoor struggle, May 22. The general strike started on May 19, two days after one member committed suicide on May 17. The suicide was in protest of suppression of the labor union by Samsung, calling for workers to be paid a living wage. (by Lee Jeong-yong, staff photographer)
