Submission + - Samsung Workers Given Just 85 Seconds to Assemble a Smartphone (ibtimes.co.uk)

DavidGilbert99 writes: A worker in Samsung’s factory in Zona Franca de Manaus, which sits on the banks of the Amazon, is given just six seconds to prepare a box containing a mobile phone battery charger, headset and two instruction manuals. This task is expected to be carried out up to 6,800 times in single shift.
This — along with having just 85 seconds to put entirely assemble a smartphone, 10-hour shifts standing on your feet, working 27 days straight and a hugely increased incidence of work-related injuries — are the reasons why prosecutors in Brazil have brought legal action against Samsung for violating labour laws.
