Senegal: Poor Working Conditions for Workers at a Chinese Owned Factory

Blog Politique du Sénégal outlines (Fr) poor working conditions for Senegalese workers at Henan Chine, a chinese-owned factory in Senegal: “Holidays are not paid, social contributions are not made even though they are withheld from salaries.” Adds the blog: “Can things be any different given the rights (or non-rights) of workers in China?…I don't see why [the Chinese] would treat Senegalese workers better than they do their own.”
