China Labor Watch finds toy firms exploiting Chinese workers

China Labor Watch has accused big toy firms, including the likes of Hasbro, Mattel, Disney and Fisher-Price, of allegedly exploiting Chinese workers.

Following an undercover investigation this year in April and September, China Labour Watch found that four toy factories that produce for Mattel, Hasbro, Disney, McDonalds and Wal-Mart were guilty of various violations.

These included long working hours without rest breaks, ignoring the Pre-Work Safety Training and lacking safety protection measures, low wages, poor food and accommodation and refusing to pay social insurance.

In a bid to help stop these actions, China Labor Watch is fighting against the unfair oppression of workers who manufacture toys.
