The Dark World of Disney (Zhenyang)

Labor issues at toy factory: 12 hour daily shifts during peak season (May – October), 6 days/week; too low wages; base wage is insufficient to cover workers living costs; 8.7 RMB/hour (1.3 USD/hour); workers work with toxic chemicals; in assembly room no protection equipment was offered other than a work hat; during peak season, applications for sick leave hardly get approved; the training officer required all workers to check the “I’m willing to work overtime” option without asking them.
