Samsung is planning to reevaluate working conditions in some of its Chinese facilities after an investigation revealed widespread abuses.

In its efforts to slavishly copy Apple, the Korean outfit apparently picked up a few nasty habits along the way. The investigation, carried out by China Labor Watch, centered on six Samsung owned plants and two plants owned by Chinese partners.

China Labor Watch found that the plants frequently forced workers to work overtime in exhausting working conditions, with many workers having to do their job standing for hours on end.
