"The workers said that they did not receive the benefits provided by the law", March 3 2023

"If you take leave because you are sick, you are told that you cannot take leave. Workers are also told that they don't take their legal rights because they don't know. There are people who don't take leave because they are sick ... [Workers are harassed by supervisors and managers] [they] don't even call them by their names, they ... call them "Fa-ma", "Pa-ma", and some workers knock Leaders/Supers' heads, thighs, and backs. Even if it's just clothes, it will be cut from the salary. "Super saw the line workers with clothes," said a worker at the factory.

It is reported that [there are more than 2000 workers at the factory, producing for] the Muji brand.

Workers at the factory, who did not want to be named, said that they want the officials to solve the violation of workers' rights in the workplace, and they are not allowed to enjoy the rights and benefits of the law.
