I have written before that the continuing decline in Samsung's smartphone business will ultimately have an impact on the company's employees. Certainly, rumors have been circulating for some time that the South Korea giant will cut jobs during 2015. That would follow up on 30% of the smartphone division being cut last year, but Samsung has taken another drastic action of freezing employees' salaries this year.

When companies start looking to employees to save cash you know times are trying. Of course, Samsung still makes billions of dollars in profit, but the company suffered a demoralizing 2014 and the future is unclear in terms of continued market dominance. In other words, the good times are most definitely over.

Now, an unnamed Samsung official says that "the management and employees have reached an agreement on fixing wages." China's slowing economy is being offered as the main contributing factor.
