Reuters reveals Dyson splits with Malaysia supplier, stoking concern over migrant worker treatment

Reuters detailed the back story behind the decision by high-end home appliance maker Dyson to pull its business from its main supplier, ATA, amid growing scrutiny of Malaysia’s labour practices. Reuters revealed how ATA’s mostly migrant work force worked up to 15 hours a day, were often asked to skip rest days to keep up with demand, and were coached to hide true working and living conditions from labour inspectors and Dyson for years.
