Disneyland uses child labor suicide sweatshops claim

Disney's best-selling Cars toys are being made in a factory in China that uses child labour and forces staff to do three times the amount of overtime allowed by law, according to an investigation. One worker reportedly killed herself after being repeatedly shouted at by bosses. Others cited worries over poisonous chemicals. Disney has now launched its own investigation.

Thomas the Tank Engine range, Matchbox cars, Cars, Toy Story, Barbie and Fisher Price products, Scrabble and the Hot Wheels sets and many others.

IMO: A lot more of this must go on in China if they can keep such prices as they charge. A Taiping style revolution due ? Its a thought. But when you go to China you will see only the very glamerous bits of the country and perhaps get an entirely different thought. A bunch of crooks making cheap toys for little British louts.
