Labor exploitation rampant in Chinese-owned mining companies

In China in Africa and China in Peru, parallel investigations for Bloomberg Markets, Simon Clark, Michael Smith and Franz Wild report on the exploitation of indigenous peoples by Chinese-owned mining companies in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The authors report that "hundreds of workers have been injured or killed since 2005 working for Chinese companies." The investigations take a careful look at the companies' lack of health and safety standards and abuse of child labor, as well as providing insight into Chinese business practices in commodity-rich countries across the globe.
