Nike OEMs show poor labour practices in China

According to the "Nike 2007-2009 Corporate Social Responsibility Report", more than 20 percent of Nike’s original equipment manufacturers have asked their employees to work excessive overtime hours and this number is still on the increase.

The report reportedly shows that in 2007, 110 Nike OEMs asked their workers to work about 60-72 hours each week, and workers at 27 Nike OEMs even worked more than 72 hours during a typical week.
