Apple and Samsung workers are forced to sleep in factories
Apple and Samsung want to ensure that the release schedule for their next high-end products is met. To this end, the factories that are handling production are taking extraordinary measures to reduce as much as possible the possibility of workers being infected with Covid-19.
Bloomberg says that workers at some of these partners of the tech giants in Vietnam have been sleeping in factories, thus ensuring production continues at ‘full speed’. Allegedly, these factories have created makeshift dormitories, with tents or bunks made of iron and bamboo, and anyone who goes home has to be quarantined before testing negative.

The way in which these workers are being treated is raising multiple criticisms, especially from Apple at a time when the company is struggling to go back to work in its offices in Cupertino, USA.
