Progressive groups conduct picket protest vs. Hanjin labor standards

From 2006 to May 2018, at least 60 workers have died working in the shipyard due to the unsafe working environment. On May 12 this year, eight workers fell from a scaffolding, leaving two dead and two others in comatose. Workers also have tasks that require them to work under the glare of the sun the whole day, and some work with asbestos, a chemical that has already been banned. Despite all these violations of occupational safety and health standards, no has been held liable.
