Germany -Undercover at Daimler -May 16, 2013

The TV-channel ARD broadcasted a SWR-report on the working conditions at a Daimler plant in Stuttgart that revealed the use of subcontractors as a method to circumvent the normal wages and working conditions. An undercover reporter contacted a staffing firm which transferred him to a logistics company used by the Daimler plant. The carmaker was accused of illegally using temporary employment, a claim the firm denies. In the meantime the public prosecutor has reacted and introduced an investigation against management.
