Finnish organisation, Finn Watch follows SwedWatch to decry the inhuman working conditions in Chinese factories
Wednesday, 27 June 2012
When westerners cry that most of their jobs have been outsources to
China and China on the other side boast that it is recording 8 to 10
percent economic growth, and also Western firms report huge corporate
profits, all that comes down to the slavish ways the Chinese workers
are put through.
As they could not do it here, they find it easy to do it over there –
in China where the government has nothing to do with quality of life of

Ohlsson, auto parts dealer, Biltema, as well as Fiskars them
Swedish organisation, Swedwatch has also complained about the behaviour
of Swedish companies producing in China and have called on the market
