Nike Student Monitoring Report Korea March 7th and March 10th I visited four factories three in Seoul Korea and one in Pusan Korea The sizes of the factories ranged from 35 to 100 workers and women above the age of 35 made up the majority of the factories laborers At each of the factories two PriceWaterhouse Coopers PWC employees from Korea audited the factories while I observed These audits consisted of inspecting the factories reviewing time sheets and cards and interviewing 25 factory workers The two PWC employees divided the work so that one interviewed the workers and the other reviewed paperwork verifying employees age payroll and compensation Overall I had a positive impression of the factories and Nikes monitoring methods The general impression I received from each of the four factories was that the manager and the workers had a relatively good relationship The managers knew each employee by name and during the interviews most employees stated that the managers were easy to talk to if they had a problem In two of the four factories the factory management provided extracurricular activities for its employees Although there was only one designated 15 minute break throughout the day besides lunch employees stated that they were allowed to take smoke breaks water breaks and bathroom breaks on their own time When we interviewed 25 workers from the factories none expressed physical or verbal abuse Many of the employees that were interviewed went so far as to laugh when asked the question and many expressed that if abuse did occur they would leave the factory immediately Also during the factory visits there were no signs of child labor the youngest worker at the factories was 16 years old and the workers interviewed stated that they had not seen a young child work at the factories On the day of the audits all the factories were clean and well maintained The major problems at the factories were overtime
